Supplementary Essays



1. Lost and Found: the Edytha Moser Collection of Mahler Proofs

This short essay is based on two newspaper reports of legal proceedings connected with the alleged theft of a set of proofs, annotated by Mahler, of songs published by Kahnt in 1905. Only those for Kindertotenlieder and 'Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen' have found their way into a public collection (Memorial Library of Music, Stanford University).

2. Mahler on the performance of his Lieder (19067)

In Berlin in 1907 Mahler accompanied the Dutch baritone, Johannes Messchaert, in a recital of his songs. This essay examines their correspondence, and in particular the evidence it provides of Mahler's pragmatic and creative response to collaboration with a singer he admired. It also explores an unforeseen consequence of this collaboration, which could have undermined the composer's relations with two singers, Messchaert and Tilly Koenen.

3. Josef Stritzko (18611908)

An account of the career of the composer, conductor and businessman, Josef Stritzko who, as the head of the music department of the Erste Wiener Zeitungsgesllschaft (trading under the name 'Josef Eberle & Co.'), was effectively Mahler's main publisher in the years 18981910. A provisional list of compositions by Stritzko forms an appendix.
