Gustav Mahler’s family documents are going onlinemain
The Mahler-Rosé Collection at the University of Western Ontario has begun the process of digitisation and should, in due course, be entirely searchable online.
This is a very positive development. The collection, the largest resource of Mahler material in North America, contains vital information about the composer’s early ears, his relations with his siblings, and theirs with his wife. Some of the material has been published in documentary studies but there is much still to be examined and not every researcher can afford the trip to London, Ontario.
