Looking at my copy of this month’s Gramophone magazine reminded me that this year, 2010, sees the 150th anniversary of the birth of composer Gustav Mahler (born 7th July 1860). However, the front cover of the special celebratory issue of the esteemed organ that this event inspired features a photograph that reveals something of a  likeness to Professor Ian Smail, another noted individual (geddit?) … though, perhaps, one not always known for his harmoniousness.
