MAHLER GUSTAV (1860-1911)
L.A.S. "Mahler", [ca. 1906-1907], to Alfred HERTZ; 1 page, oblong in-12, headed Der Director des K. K. HofOperntheaters; in German. About his succession as director of the Vienna State Opera. [Mahler was appointed Kapellmeister in 1897, then Artistic Director of the Vienna State Opera; in 1907 he was dismissed. The conductor Alfred HERTZ (1872-1942), who seeks here to succeed him, had conducted the Breslau Opera from 1899 to 1902; he spent most of his career in the United States]. As far as the question of his succession is concerned, Mahler is completely excluded. He cannot even trust that the rumors in the newspapers are true. The best thing would be to contact the managing director as a candidate, possibly referring to him. He would then answer a question put to him. If he learns anything, he will let him know... "In der Frage meiner Nachfolgeschaft bin ich gegenwartig ganz ausgeschaltet. Momentan kann ich nicht einmal beurtheilen, was an den Zeitungsgerüchten wahr ist. - I would like to thank the General Superintendent of the Bewerber, and we may even be able to help you in the future. - Eine Anfrage, die an mich gestellt würde, würde ich ganz in Ihrem Sinne beantworten [...] Wenn ich was erfahre, so will ich es Ihnen mittheilen "...
