- Marina Mahler, Alma’s granddaughter
- Nuria Nono Schoenberg, daughter of Arnold Schoenberg
- Paul Lester, Alma’s godson
- Walter Arlen, composer and music journalist, another member of the Austrian ex-patriate community in California.
This edition of The Mahler Hour starts a new series of programs on the life, works, and significance of Alma: Alma Schindler, Mahler, Gropius, Werfel.
We will begin with her qualities as a person. What were her strengths and weaknesses? What made her so unique? And why is she such a controversial figure?
For this, we will have the rare opportunity to speak with friends and family who knew her and who can give us firsthand accounts of their interactions with this singular individual.
