Passionate Spirit: The Life of Alma Mahler

  • Wed 18 Sep 2019
  • 7:00PM

Alma Mahler, wife of Gustav Mahler, Walter Gropius and Franz Werfel, has been hailed as the first ‘celebrity’ in Vienna at the turn of the 20th century. But far from being a passive muse, Alma was an active partner and collaborated with these men to enable them to reach their full potential. Biographer Cate Haste brings an important addition to the emerging canon of work that reconsiders women in history and shines a light on this sensational figure of the 20th century. 

The book presentation will be accompanied by a performance of Alma Mahler’s Lieder by mezzo-soprano Emma Juengling and pianist Benjamin Malcolm Mead.
