Publisher Marketing: GUSTAV MAHLER MEMORIES AND LETTERS MAHLER AS A CONDUCTOR 1910 by Alma Mahler PREFACE I WROTE this book many years ago, and my only reason for doing so was because no one knew Gustav Mahler so well as I and because I did not want the experiences we shared and the expressions of his thought to be crowded out of my own memory by the pressure and hurry of life. It was not originally my intention to have the book published during my lifetime. But now the whole of Europe has been rocked to its foundations and nothing stands where it did. Rodins bust of Mahler, which I presented to the Vienna Operahouse and which was unveiled by the last President of Austria, has now been removed from its pedestal. The wide street in Vienna named after Gustav Mahler has been renamed Meistersinger Street. The large sum of money subscribed throughout the world for a Gustav Mahler monument has been appropriated without ceremony to one of the usual welfare funds of annexed Austria. I therefore have no scruple in saying openly what I know from experience of persons who live their lives and play their parts in the Third Reich. The doors have been slammed. And not from one side only. All that I say of Richard Strauss is taken from the daily entries in my diary. It should not be forgotten that Richard Strauss, the greatest master of contemporary music in the first defcade of this century, was Gustav Mahlers only rival. Only those who were there at the time, and able to appreciate it, know what Mahler did for Vienna during the glorious years of his reign there. Today Germany is deprived of his music, and the memory of his life and compositions is carefully eflaced. In other countries the great conductors, Willem Mengdberg, Bruno Walter and Otto Klemperer exert themselves on his behalf, and the best of the young conductors follow their example. They keep the torch alight and hand it on, until the day when the doors of his own country are thrown open again and his work is joyfully welcomed there once more

Alma Schindler, Geliebte von Alexander Zemlinski und Oskar Kokoschka, Ehefrau von Gustav Mahler, Walter Gropius und Franz Werfel, war bis zu ihrer Verbindung mit Gustav Mahler eine eigenständige künstlerische Persönlichkeit, die bei Alexander Zemlinski studierte und in dieser Zeit mehr als 100 Klavierlieder komponierte, die heute zum größten Teil verschollen sind. Dass sie bis heute als Komponistin weitgehend unbekannt geblieben ist, liegt vor allem an der jahrhundertelangen Geringschätzung von komponierenden Frauen und an dem Umstand, dass Mahler die kompositorischen Ambitionen seiner Frau noch vor der Heirat erstickte, indem er sie schriftlich bat: "Ist es Dir möglich, von nun an meine Musik als die Deine anzusehen". So kam es auch nicht zu einer gegenseitigen Beeinflussung der Stile, Almas Schaffen ist durchaus ein Produkt des Fin de siècle, während seine Werke nichts vom Zeitgeist spüren lassen. - Sabine Ritterbusch und Heidi Kommerell bieten mit ihrer Auswahl ein interessantes Doppelportrait eines Ehepaares, das sich wider Erwarten nicht gegenseitig beeinflusste.

Oskar Kokoschka first met Alma Mahler on April 12, 1912, exactly eleven months after the death of her husband - the composer Gustav Mahler. Three days later, the much younger Kokoschka proposed to her in a passionate letter and they embarked on a stormy relationship which was to last only three years. This short and passionate affair greatly influenced his work. Kokoschka, born in Austria in 1886, was both an artist and writer. He led a turbulent life and travelled extensively, before settling in England where he became a British Subject in 1947. He died in Switzerland in 1980, just days before his 94th birthday. Kokoschka's work was greatly influenced by Gustav Klimt and medieval artists such as Lucas Cranach and Albrecht Durer, painting in a distinctive Expressionist style in his early career. Kokoschka and Alma Mahler explores their passionate relationship, illustrating and discussing the 20 paintings, 70 drawings and prints, and 7 fans that bear witness to this incredibly intense and fateful relationship. His works reflect his love and overwhelming desire, the impressions gained from his travels, and the depths of his despair. The fascinating picture portrayed by the author includes hitherto unpublished material, in particular Alma Mahler's diary from 1912-1913
