Anton Bruckner - A Documentary Biography
2002 0-7734-7300-9
This study provides a fuller account of Bruckner’s early and middle years than has hitherto been available, and supplements the more accessible information about his years in Vienna by drawing on a rich source of material in contemporary reviews of performances of his works, comparisons between him and Brahms, and the well-documented accounts of hostility between the ‘conservative’ pro-Brahms faction (represented by Hanslick, Kalbeck and others) and the ‘progressive’ pro-Wagner and pro-Bruckner faction (represented by the Schalk brothers, Ferdinand Löwe and Hugo Wolf).
