F O Beethoven

Hauptplatz 34, Linz

In 1812 Beethoven visited his brother Johann, trying to keep him out of the intended marriage with Johanna Lamatsch. However, there is no evidence that he stayed at this address ─ then the inn Stadt Frankfurt ─where a plaque recalls Beethoven’s visit to Linz and even mentions his work at the 8th Symphony.It is only certain that Johann had his pharmacy at the Hauptplatz (nr. 8) and that Ludwig himself appeared at a nr. 34 (in the Herrengasse). Both houses were demolished. Therefore ‘Hauptplatz 34’?

at6.0102

F O Kepler

Rathausgasse 5, Linz

House of the astronomer Johannes Kepler. In 1619 he published Harmonices Mundi Libri V , a tract about the mathematical connection between cosmos and music, between the cycles of celestial bodies and the musical harmonies. This idea goes back to the medieval musica mundana and even to Pythagoras. It inspiredPaul Hindemith to his Kepler opera Harmonie der Welt and his symphony of the same name.

Around the corner, at the city hall, there are plaques of Kepler and Bruckner.

at6.0103

F O Mozart

Altstadt 17, Linz

In 1783 Mozart interrupted his return trip from Salzburg to Vienna in Linz, to give some concerts. He arrived at October 30th, the first concert was planned for the 4th of November. Because a symphony was needed, he wrote one in three days ­─ his masterly KV 425, Linzer. He stayed in the Starhembergische Freihaus, then a property of the noble Thun family, that appears more often in the musical history.

Pfarrplatz, Linz

Stadtpfarrkirche

In 1856 Bruckner was appointed city organist; he occupied this post until 1868. The organ from 1853by Ludwig Moser had two manuals and 38 stops; after Bruckner’s time it was extended by an extra manual. The Meßnerhaus next to this church, then Bruckners house, was demolished.

In addition to the Stadtkirche, Bruckner worked from 1856 until 1868 at the 16th century Ignatiuskirche or Alter Dom. The Chrismann organ from 1790 was rebuilt in 1865-67 by Josef Breinbauer according to Bruckner’s wishes; it covers 3 manuals and 32 stops. The plaque mentions also Bruckner’s function as choirmaster of the Liedertafel Frohsinn.

Herrengasse 24, Linz

At Landstraße 15 was a former medieval hospital, that in 1785 was split up in apartments. Schubert was a guest there of Josef von Spaun´s sister in 1823 and 25. The house made space for an ugly building, only the Schubert plaque survived. However, in 1819 Schubert stayed in Spaun´s own house atHerrengasse 24, built in 1791 and still extant: a better choice for a plaque, isn´t it?

O Schubert (Spaun)

Schloßpark, Steyeregg

In July 1825 Schubert and his friend Vogl stayed for some days with countess Weißenwolf, an admirer of the composer. She was particularly impressed by his songs on poems by Walter Scott, among which the famous Ave Maria. Afterwards the Scott songs were dedicated to her. There is a plaque at the wall of the castle park, the Neue Schloß itself was destroyed in the last war.

Brucknerplatz 9, Kronstorf

After Bruckner’s first disappointing job as assistant teacher in distant Windhaag (> 14), he was better off in Kronstorf, where he worked from January 1843 until summer 1845 as assistant teacher and organist in the neighboring church. His organ was replaced by a better one in 1879: the instrument - 1 manual, 11 stops - by Bruckner’s favorite organ maker Matthias Mauracher survives in its original state. Bruckner’s small room next to the classroom is accessible to the public.

After his father’s death in 1837 the young Bruckner lived here as the foster child of the Bogner family and as chorister of the monastery church. In 1840 he left St. Florian for Linz (> 1.5), but returned in 1845 after his appointment as teacher at his former school and as organist of the monastery. Bruckner’s apartment was behind the window over the plaque.Atthe right side of the house, now the post office, were the classrooms.

M B K E Bruckner

Augustiner-Chorherrenstift

In this impressing monastery Anton Bruckner worked as chorister (1837-40) and organist (1845-55). Afterwards he paid several visits here and finally was buried in the crypt of the church. Just between the zinc coffin and the organ bank his gravestone was placed. His brother Ignaz and two of his sisters are also buried on the premises.

The great organ was made in 1774 by Franz Xaver Chrismann (3 manuals, 74 stops) and altered in later times, but in 1945-51 partially restored by Zika. Present disposition: 4 manuals, 103 stops. There is a second organ, by Mauracher, in the Marienkapelle, a gift from Ignaz Bruckner out of Anton’s legacy.

In the Brucknerzimmer some furniture from Bruckners last house is exposed, including his grand piano and the pedal harmonium from his classroom in the Vienna conservatorium; his own studio in the monastery however was the Musikzimmer Nr. 4, which is not open to the public.

B F O C Bruckner

Brucknerplatz 4, Steyr

Stadtpfarrhof

Anton Bruckner stayed here during the summers of 1886-94 with his former pupil Franz Bayer, then the choirmaster of the Stadtpfarrkirche. One of his predecessors was Silvester Paumgartner, the admirer of Schubert and frequent performer of his church music, which became an important ingredient of the church’s repertoire.

The outside staircase of the Pfarrhof, Bayer’s house, is called Brucknerstiege. On the place the first Bruckner monument was erected, with a bust by Victor Tilgner (1898).

O Bruckner

Anton-Bruckner-Weg, Bad Kreuzen

Bruckner stayed in this spa during the early summer of 1867 in order to overcome a life crisis, caused by overtiredness, lack of recognition and vain attempts to get a post and a wife. A part of the f-minor Mass was composed here.

A favorite trip of his to a source in the Pfarrwaldis recommended today as Bruckner-Wanderweg (3½ km.).

His opera Der Evangelimann (1894), a Humperdinckian mixture of naïve folk elements and a Wagner sound, was very successful; the anthem of the Austrian republic, composed in 1918 on a text by chancellor Renner, did not meet approval and was replaced in 1945.

J - Mahler

Eduard-Bach-Straße 4, Bad Hall

Heimathaus

In 1873 a wooden summer theatre was built in the spa Bad Hall, here in 1880 the 20 year old Gustav Mahler was appointed Kurkapellmeister, i.e. conductor, administrator and caretaker. The meager remuneration, the bad orchestra and the unsuitable theatre with 188 seats made him already leave at the end of the season. The theatre was closed in 1883 and finally demolished.

No plaque for Mahler (in the Trinkhalle there is one for Robert Stolz, who never was here) and a Mahler jubilee concert in 1980 attracted only twenty listeners, but the composer is well remembered in a permanent exhibition in the Heimathaus.

L B, various composers

Benediktinerstift, Kremsmünster

In this monastery three composers were guests. Michael Haydn provided it with several church compositions.Vogl and Schubert appeared in a song recital in May 1825; Vogl had studied here. Bruckner was a frequent visitor; in 1849 his Requiem was performed, in 1877 he improvised on four themes on occasion of the millennium celebration of the monastery and from 1883 he returned every year. In the archives there are Haydn- and Bruckner autographs.

Organ lovers will be disappointed. The great Mooser organ (1858) has undergone too many alterations, the choir organ by Jörg Hacker (1787), with interesting stops including army trumpet, bagpipe and cuckoo, is kept in clausura, i.e. not accessible to outsiders.

The restauration by Kögler in 1989 resulted in a fine instrument, in spite of all the alterations.

The Lambach monastery with parts from the 11th century is of great artistic importance. Mozart visited it four times: 1767, ’69 and ’73 with his father, 1783 alone.During the second visit both father and son wrote a symphony; the Alte Lambacheris supposed to be written by Wolfgang (KV Anh. 221), the Neue Lambacher by Leopold, but it may be the other way around. Of the organ Mozart played (Egedacher, 1657) only the magnificent front survived.

Villa Josef

Here Schönberg wrote in 1921 the Prelude to the Piano Suite op. 25, his first strictly dodecaphonic composition. He loved spending the summers at the Traunsee shore, although the holidays of 1908 had been overshadowed by the tragic affair with Gerstl ( >at3.60).

F O Wolf

Klosterplatz 1, Traunkirchen

Pfarrei

In the presbyteryof the Traunkirchen parish, originally a medieval monastic building, Hugo Wolf spent the late summer of 1891. A temporary dip in his creativity he tried to avert by playing Beethoven Sonatas, as a healing antidote against the ‘narcotic’ music of Wagner to which he was addicted. He returned here in the next two years.

Krähbauerhaus

More houses which Wolf could occupy thanks to the Köcherts. In Rindbach (1) he lived in 1883, ’84, ’89 and ’90. In 1891 he stayed in Roith (2), but the noise of a quarry and of the ‘Unentwegten Gegackers und Gekrächtes‘ by the cattle drove him up the wall and after some weeks he moved to Traunkirchen (> 35.4).

F O Mahler

Seefeld 14, Steinbach am Attersee

Gasthof Föttinger

In 1893 Gustav Mahler rented for himself and his family five rooms of this inn, then called Gasthof zum Höllengebirge. In the three following years he returned, after a special cabin was built in the garden to protect him, while composing, from the noise of other tourists. In this Komponierhäuschen the 2nd Symphony was composed. After his last visit in 1896, the cabin served as slaughterhouse, washing hut and sanitary unit of a campsite, until it was restored into a small but interesting Mahler museum. The cabin stood model for later ones in Maiernigg and Toblach (Dobbiaco).

Lehárkai 8, Bad Ischl

Franz Lehár lived here from 1910 until his death in 1948 and bequested the villa, with all the furniture, works of art, letters etc., to the Ischl municipality. The chock-full museum gives an insight in Lehár’s mania for collecting things and his eclectic taste, but his music gets scarcely attention.

The first house of Johannes Brahms in Ischl was at Mastaliergasse 5, in the quarter Kaltenbach. Here he met Johann Strauß, who lived nearby. The house was demolished; a weather-beaten bust in the garden could be seen in the 1990s (> photo) but moved afterwards to the Museumsgarten, let’s hope in an improved condition.
