2 comments on “Jazz for Eva Gauthier

    • There’s lots of Jazz meets the Classics online, but I went for the less obvious and, in my view, more interesting because of it. Also, apart from the track Beethoven, which I included because it’s my blog, all the tracks have a connection with the Eva I wrote about in my article.

      Mahler went to New York for the first three months of 1908 as director/conductor of Metropolitan Opera. He returned from Austria in November 1910 only to fall ill at Christmas, so he returned to Vienna where he died on May 18th.

      Although I can’t find his name in connection with Eva Gauthier, she may well have met him, and even sung an aria or two that he had composed.
