Vienna, 1902. Alma Schindler, 22, pregnant, marries Gustav Mahler, 41, renowned director of the Vienna State Opera. Alma looked up to Gustav, but she did not like his music (except for a few later compositions, like Das Lied von der Erde or Symphonies No. 6 and 7). She was a composer too. Gustav adored her, but he only agreed to marry her on the condition that she gave up her career as a composer: ‘You’ll live for my music, not yours.’ They stayed married until Gustav’s death in 1911. After his death, Alma destroyed their letters, redacting or rewriting some. So maybe the real love story of Alma and Gustav – key figures of the cultural history of Europe at the turn of the century – can only be read in the music.
