One woman and the four men whose lives revolved around her. A muse, an artist, a wife, a mother, a lover and a patron, Alma Mahler was a central figure in the musical zeitgeist of Vienna in the early 20th century whose influence continued even after her immigration to America. But beyond the tropes imposed on her by the men around her, was a woman whose fierce independence and talent were ahead of her time.
