THE GHOST OF MAHLER

by 

Ann Patterson

THE GHOST OF MAHLER is a fictional collage based on historical facts, letters, diaries and incidents encompassing a twenty year period in the fascinating life of Alma Mahler-Gropius-Werfel. The story of Alma Mahler, her three husbands, the composer Gustav Mahler, the architect Walter Gropius, and the writer Franz Werfel, and her lover, the artist Oskar Kokoschka, is much more than just a salacious love story. It is a journey through one of this century's most fertile and tumultuous cultural periods. Each man Alma knew and loved was on the brink of artistic discovery when they met, and the work she inspired had a great influence on the modern history of music, art, architecture and literature. Very deserved indeed was her informal title 'muse to geniuses.'
