9780193151604: Gustav Mahler, Vol. 3: Vienna: Triumph and Disillusion, 1904-1907

When the second volume of de La Grange's monumental study of Mahler appeared, it was hailed in The New Yorker, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and many other publications as an indispensable portrait of the great composer. Here at last is the third volume of this magisterial work.
Ranging from 1904 to 1907, it explores Mahler's final years as administrator, producer, and conductor of the Vienna Opera. It was a time of intense inner struggle, with Mahler's energy and creative powers drained by the competing demands of running the Hofoper and struggling for recognition as a composer. And they were tragic years as well, especially 1907, Mahler's last year in Vienna, when the death of his daughter and the diagnosis of heart disease forced him to leave the Opera. Throughout the book, de La Grange offers true-to-life portraits of Mahler the human being, the family man, and the composer, and he weaves in innumerable testimonies and anecdotes that throw new light on the great composer's complex personality.
The product of forty years of research, here is the definitive study of a musical giant. It is, as The Wall Street Journal said of volume two, "a work of the first importance, one that nobody seriously interested in Mahler can possibly afford to skip."

About the Author:


Henry-Louis de La Grange is President of the Gustav Mahler Musical Library, Paris. He is also a chevalier of the Order of the Legion d'honneur, and an officer of the Ordre du Merite.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A masterly deployment of every retrievable fact about the driven Austrian composer-conductor of genius (18601911) during these tumultuous years. De La Grange (president, Gustav Mahler Musical Library, Paris) takes up directly from Vol. 2 (1995; Vol. 1, 1973) with Mahlers struggles to reenergize the fractious Hofoperthe Vienna Operathe court-sponsored repertory company he had directed since 1897. Provocative productions are revived via eye-catching descriptions; thumbnail portraits reanimate Viennas singers, musicians, stagefolk, and bureaucrats. Able to compose only during vacations, in this brief span Mahler created the prodigious, forward-looking Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth symphonies, granted elaborate analyses in an appendix. Memoirs and interviews testify how this Napoleon of the baton tirelessly rehearsed his works and others, old and new, contending, Tradition is nothing else than sloppiness. Every performance is chronicled, thanks to the periods florid prolix journalism (often marred by Austrias endemic anti-Semitism), castigating his failures and successes alike. No wonder that, despite prescient champions, Mahler developed a persecution complex, lamenting he would be happy, oh happy to be a shoemaker! The biographer painstakingly reassembles Mahlers paradoxical character, intricate as his art, straightening the record about his relations with colleague and rival Richard Strauss; his problematical marriage to the complex and disconcerting Alma Schindler, 19 years his junior; and the fatal illness in late 1907 of his daughter, Maria, age four and a half. Anecdotes, aphorisms, and letters enliven the narratives progress toward the frustrated directors resignation from the Hofoper. Once Vol. 4 appears (following Mahler to New York to conduct and the diagnosis of the heart condition that led to his death at 50), de La Grange will have spent as long researching Mahlers life as it took to live it. A life-and-times motherlode for the aficionado; a requisite for performing-arts collections; a monument that will endure.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Revised and Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Gustav Mahler was one of the supremely gifted musicians of his generation. His contemporaries came to know him as a composer of startling originality whose greatest successes with the public never failed to provoke controversy among the critics. As a conductor, his relentless pursuit of perfection was sometimes viewed as tyrannical by the singers and musicians who came under his baton. Professor Henry-Louis de La Grange has devoted over thirty years of painstaking research to this study of Mahlers life and works. His biography, ultimately to be completed in four volumes, is drawn from a vast archive of documents, autographs, and pictures, assembled by La Grange at the Bibliotheque Musicale Gustav Mahler, Paris. This third volume covers the years 1904-1907 and shows Mahler in his final years at the Hofoper coping with the rival demands on his energy and creative powers of the Opera on the one hand and his continuing struggle for recognition as a composer in his own right on the other. The first signs of marital difficulties with Alma emerge. Mahlers trials culminate in 1907 with the death of Putzi, his eldest daughter, a terminal crisis at the Opera which makes him decide to leave Vienna, and the alarming diagnosis by the doctors of a cardiac deficiency. True to life portraits are drawn of Mahler the human being, the family man, and the composer, as well as the administrator, producer, and conductor at the Vienna Opera. Innumerable testimonies and anecdotes throw new light on the many aspects of Mahler s complex personality. Codice libro della libreria AAC9780193151604
