1904 Concert Prague 25-02-1904 – Symphony No. 3

  • Soloist: Ottilie Costa-Fellwock (1877-1913).
  • Conductor: Gustav Mahler (1860-1911).
  • Orchestra: Orchestra of the Koniglich Deutsches Landestheater, a total of 110 players.
  • Chorus: Women’s choir, augmented by 9 soloists and an unspecified children’s chorus consisting of 40 voices.
  • Concert number: c162.
  • Notes: Mahler arrived in Prague at 7 a.m. in the same morning. The general rehearsal was held at 10 a.m. for critics only. The orchestra was prepared by Leo Blech (1871-1958). Soprano Betty Frank (1864-0000), Mahler’s sweetheart from his 1885-1886 season, founded a “singing school” in the early 1890’s which included a children’s choir. It was probably this choir which participated in the concert.
