"The Loveliest Girl in Vienna": The Life of Alma Mahler

Part of Jewish Book Week

Arts & Culture

Tom Lehrer famously wrote a song about Alma, inspired by, he said, “the juiciest, spiciest, raciest obituary that has ever been my pleasure to read.” A talented composer in her own right, Alma’s first kiss was from Gustav Klimt and she married or had relationships with the most famous men of the day – Gustav Mahler, Walter Gropius, Oskar Kokoshka and Franz Werfel. At the epicentre of fin-de-siècle Vienna’s artistic and intellectual life, the story of one of history’s most complex and charismatic muses is illuminated by acclaimed biographer, historian and filmmaker, Cate Haste. 

Book all 3 events for £25.
