Book Description:

'A thoroughly compelling volume.' BBC Music Magazine

'Horton's team of 16 writers works hard to show how the symphony was born and why it has not (yet) died.' Gramophone

'Including essays both general and tightly focused, this collection goes well beyond the traditional chronological study and overview of the symphony and offers numerous perspectives and scholarly insights ... Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals.' B. L. Eden, Choice
