Afterward he directed the Basel Conservatory until 1934, when he returned to the Vienna State Opera for two seasons. He composed, among other works, six symphonies, three symphonic poems, and several operas. His writings on music include an important essay on conducting, and he edited (1899) the complete works of Berlioz.
