Savonarola - Hans Mueller

Post by brendan g carroll » Mon Jul 12, 2010 7:20 am

Regarding Mueller's SavOnarola (please note correct spelling)...

I regret no copy of this survives in Korngold's estate and Mueller had no surviving relatives, so his nachlasse was sold and dispersed in 1951 after his death. It is very sad as I am sure there were many documents, letters and photos that would have been very interesting. These must now either be destroyed or in private collections.

However there are lots of details about the subject of this rejected libretto on the internet.

Good luck!
