The English conductor, composer and critic G.W.L. Marshall-Hall dominated music in Melbourne from his arrival in 1891 to his untimely death in 1915. He was a ‘firebrand and an iconoclast’ hated by the clergy, feared by the press and adored by all his friends. This new collection of sixteen essays examines Marshall-Hall’s music, his teaching and philosophy, his friendships with artists and musicians including Arthur Streeton and Percy Grainger, and the ruinous scandals sparked by his unorthodox views on religion, sex and the role of the press.
