Ticket to the Mahler Festival Amsterdam


Arnold Schönberg Center

Arnold Schönberg Center
Vienna, Austria

In May 1920, composer Arnold Schönberg undertook a pilgrimage to the Mahler Festival in Amsterdam with family, friends and representatives of Vienna’s cultural life, organized by Willem Mengelberg, director of the Concertgebouw Orchestra. Apart from Schönberg’s family, other persons from Vienna were along. “The journey started in a happy mood for our small group of fellow-travellers in the comfortable, not too crowded carriages of the ‘Holland Express.’ We crossed all borders without difficulties and arrived without any delays in Amsterdam. We were met by members of the Festival committee who took charge of our luggage and brought us all to our respective quarters: some in hotels and some in private accommodation.” (Egon Wellesz: Das Mahler-Fest in Amsterdam, in Neue Freie Presse, 17 May 1920, p. 1–2)
