I have studied music and played the piano for 40 years and until now have not appreciated this giant of impressionistic and romance compositions. His works transcend our physical senses and soar like a spirit on wings. I am particularly interested in obtaining a text for piano of his "Old Vienna Seranades-Allegro Movement."

Many thanks for publishing this site, et. al.

Dear Stefan & Berkant, I would like to tell you about my thoughts about the "Berghymne". What beautiful piece! It is very impressing and I think the compositional style of J. Marx is equally interesting, because of his clarity of ideas. A magnificent chorale work, timeless. After hear this composer we feel we are in the presence of a true powerful mind, which deserves our respect.

JARED ARMSTRONG armstrong_jared(AT)yahoo.uk aus/from CROWBOROUGH UK schrieb/wrote (28/04/2006):

Dear Berkant, Last week, I was as usual engaged in David Bach research and wondering how/why "Herbstsinfonie" turned up in the Birthday Festschrift. So I thought I would look up the site to find if there was anything new. What a marvellous site it is now - the result of so much hard work and inspiration - would that all sites were like yours! I did not find the answer to my query, but that did not matter, because I learned so much more about this wonderful composer. A score by Julius TOLDI, which was performed in 1925 at one of Bach's concerts, has turned up - "Wanderszizzen" - 9 Variations on a Rumanian Folk Song. Starting with a single oboe, it ends up with a huge 'Gurrelieder' scoring and we are engaged in copying it on to a synthesiser, to see if it is worth resurrecting. We know about his life post 1933 in USA - hardly anything about his Vienna days, so like you with Herbstsinfonie, I am making lots of phone calls! Many thanks for your past support. Best wishes, Jared

What a wonderful website! What an astounding amount of important information, more than I can absorb at one time, so I have bookmarked it to return to, as I know I will, many times. I love Marx's music and have the 4 ASV recordings. I was sorry to see that their other Marx projects have been cancelled. But I was thrilled to hear your orchestrations of "The New Year's Hymn" and "The Mountain Hymn." What wonderful music!!!! I wish you could get someone to record them, though I would be delighted to buy your synthesized versions were they on a CD. Such glorious music!! Thank you for your labor on behalf of this great composer. I am 60 years old and have been listening seriously to music since I was a young boy, but it is only within the past few months I have heard of Joseph Marx and heard his music. I am very happy that I finally have. It obviously has much to do with your efforts. Many, many thanks,

Autumn Chorus to Pan, A New Year's Hymn, Mountain Hymn, Morning Chant, these titles of choral works sound promising. Will this music be available in 2006? ASV, CPO and other labels recorded a lot of choral-orchestral music by Austrians and other European composers, but why not Marx yet? I'll certainly visit your page again. Great work!

Dr. Karl Svozil, svozil(AT)tuwien.ac.at aus/from Vienna, Austria schrieb/wrote (10/07/2005):

Yesterday I met an old high school teacher, painter and friend, Hans Frank, who was a student of Marx in Vienna. He told me that he is saddened by the idea that so few of Marx's beautiful music has been published ... indeed nothing, he thought.

Actually, I never have heard a single piece of Marx, although I love Mahler, Schreker & Korngold and the romantic Schoenberg, until I came across the four CD's which were recently released. I listened to the sound clips and immediately ordered all of them ... desperately waiting for these CD's. I am sure that Hans Frank will be very happy to be able to finally listen to this great music.

One more thing: people should be more determined and self-conscious with regards to beauty. I myself have recently written an article http://arxiv.org/abs/physics/0505088 about aestetics and the two extremes: irritating cacophonic white type noise on the one side; and monotony on the other. Art lies inbetween. Hans told me that during a lecture, Joseph Marx was just expressing the same ideas.

I wish you all the best for your future work!

An Josef Wesely: "[…] Sie haben also die böse Zeit auch gut überstanden - ich gratuliere nachträglich! Nun möchte ich aber doch einmal Näheres über Ihr Leben erfahren. Wann haben Sie in Graz studiert? Waren Sie vielleicht zur Zeit dort, wo auch Legat, Schnabl, Wonisch, Treiber und andere lustige Brüder an der Lehrerbildungsanst. studierten? […]". - Joseph Marx erhielt bereits während seiner Gymnasialzeit Unterricht in Geige, Klavier und Komposition, studierte dann an der Univ. Graz Philosophie und Musikwissenschaft. Seit 1910 lebte er als freischaffender Komponist in Graz. 1914 wurde er Prof. der Musiktheorie und Komposition an der Wiener Akademie für Musik, deren Direktor er 1922-25 war. 1924-27 leitete Marx die der Akademie angeschlossene Fachhochschule für Musik. 1947 wurde er Honorarprofessor der Musikwissenschaften an der Univ. Graz, 1949 an der Akademie für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Wien. Zu seinen Schülern zählte u.a. Johann Nepomuk David. Marx war Musikkritiker u.a. der "Wiener Zeitung". Er komponierte im nachromantisch-impressionistischen Stil Orchester- und Kammermusik; sein Liedschaffen stand unter dem Einfluß Hugo Wolfs.

I first heard of Marx while living and studying in Vienna in the early 70's. My landlady, Martha Schneider (maternal aunt of film composer Ernest Gold)had met Richard Strauss and Mahler in her youth and also mentioned Marx as a "great composer" who had been dead less than a decade, but whose music wasn't being performed. I've always been curious to hear Marx's music. I'm pleased to have discovered this web site (Gott sei dank!) and wish you all the best in your efforts to stimulate interest in Marx's music!

Having just listen to the Orchestral Songs (on CD) I am touched by the overwheling beauty and sense of emotion every note unfolds. A truely wonderful experience and I look forward to the further releases planned in the coming months/years. This obviously neglected composer should be in everybody's catalogue along with the other great masters, it's certainly not to be missed by anyone who likes to indulge in the late romantics and these compositions should certainly be given more concert performances From the works I've listened to so far I certainly want to hear more. I could listen to them at any time. A sheer delight.

Joseph Marx's music is for me the epitome of romantic era music. What I find so wonderful about his music is that it contains all the lush, gorgeous, expansive orchestral beauty I have always loved romantic era music for without any of the angst, depression or anxiety I find spoils so much music of this era. I find Marx to be a truly optimistic romantic composer, a very rare thing indeed.

I have recently purchased the CD of the "Nature Trilogy". What beautiful music! I am so glad that there has been a belated re-awakening of interest in composers who, towards the end of their lives were condemned as "old-fashioned Romantics"-Bortkiewicz, Holbrooke, Korngold and of course, Marx to name just a few.I look forward to the issue of further CDs.

Dear Herr Haydin,

Thank you for your incredible efforts to bring attention to this wonderful composer. My interest in Marx was recently renewed when I came across the score to the Suite for cello and piano in F major in a used bookstore. I am a pianist on the faculty of the University of North Texas, and in our music library we have orchestral parts for an arrangement of the Minuet from this suite which was published by Universal. You can find the listing at http://iii.library.unt.edu/ . I hope to perform the entire suite sometime in the next year or two. I will notify you of any plans.

Meanwhile, I am looking forward to hearing the orchestral music.

Best wishes,

I came across the name of Joseph Marx in a recent list of relatively unknown works and did a little research. According to the few reviews of his works, in particular, his "Autumn symphony" the style is that of a luxuriant romantic impressionism, a style generally not germane to German style, and I am referring here to apparent impressionist tendencies. According tothe brief review his orchestral works are similar to those of Mahler, yes, understandably, but also the reviewer notes influences of Debussy, Scriabin, and Bax. The last three composers figure among my favorites. If there are hints and similarities of Debussy, Scriabin and Bax in Marx's work, I would very much like to get ahold of his work. Nothing is listed in amazon save a piano sonata which may be quite interesting. I like Bruckner and Mahler but I prefer French, English and Scandinavian music. Any advice? I would most appreciate it.

Hello, Friend Berkant! You see, I do stop in now and then! I will order the Marx orchestral CD from Amazon as soon as I return from my next visit to (you know whom) two weeks from now. Good work -- I can hardly wait to hear it.

This is one of the classiest websites I have ever seen. Berkant Haydin must be a computer genius. Sounds like a guy I would like to be acquainted with! :) Just kidding, every addition is great, you do nice work! Reminds of once when Isaw Busoni's grave in Berlin, purely by accident, we went to the graveyard to see Marlene Dietrich's grave and there it was. It was a wonderful experience for me. Take care, Jim

I've just listened to the ASV disc of the Marx' Nature Trilogy. Although I think the first and third pieces go on a bit too long, nevertheless I am astonished at Marx's ability to create and impressionistic wash of sound. The lushness and depth of these works is quite remarkable.

I also own the Romantisches Klavierkonzert, the disc of Quartets and the Violin Sonata. I eagerly await the next releases. Perhaps ASV has plans to record the Herbstsinfonie?

Thank you for providing a worthwhile and informative website about Joseph Marx.

I just heard the first five minutes of the 'Symphonische Nachtmusik' from ASV's forthcoming disc on a CD review broadcast.

How can this marvellous music have remained unknown for so long!

Thank you for a great website.

Best regards

Hi, there. I am looking for Joseph Marx's piano music. The website says that some pieces are printed by UE which is permanently out of print. Where can I get some copies of them? Can anybody help me get more of his piano music out of Austrian National Library?

Well done, Berkant. You have done a superb job. Your single-minded dedication to Marx's music and your generosity must surely warm and hearten the spirit of Marx. Rob

I'm a music student, in my first year at Queen's University in Belfast. I first heard of Marx very recently after hearing about Marc-Andre Hamelin's recording of his Romantic piano concerto. It really is a sumptuous piece of music. I am still in the process of listening to audio samples of his unrecorded works and I like what I hear! This site is great and I wish all the best for it.

Keep up the good work,

Seth Pratt.

Just to let you know I visited your site, as you asked. First class in every way, Berkant -- the added pictures are excellent. I encountered some trouble in listening to streaming sound files but that is probably in my computer. I'll be sending you an e-mail message later today, most likely.
