Alban Berg and Hanna Fuchs: The Story of a Love in Letters

Constantin Floros

Publisher: Indiana University PressFormat: Hardcover

In the fall of 1976, 14 letters by Alban Berg, renowned composer of the Second Viennese School, were discovered in the posthumous papers of Hanna Fuchs-Robettin, wife of a Prague industrialist and sister of Franz Werfel, the well-known Austro-Czech writer. In the 1920s, Berg gained international notoriety with his opera Wozzeck and the “Lyric Suite”, which was largely inspired by his relationship with Fuchs. The secret letters were delivered to Hanna surreptitiously by Theodor Adorno and Alma Mahler Werfel. They were brought to New York by Hanna on her flight from Nazi persecution, and were eventually found in her estate after her death. First discovered by George Perle, then deciphered and transcribed in German by Constantin Floros, they appear here in English for the first time.
