The Mahler Music Library was born from the will and generosity of two musicologists, Maurice Fleuret and Henry-Louis de La Grange (see our selection of books) who wanted to make their personal collections available to the general public.
Today, the Mahler Music Library, founded in 1986, is a meeting place for researchers, students and musicians, who can immerse themselves in a lavish collection of documents about Gustav Mahler and much more, including information about French and international music: music manuscripts, letters from musicians and other famous people, original photographic portraits, as well as 16,000 score volumes, 32,200 recordings and more than 17,000 books.
The Mahler Music Library is run in accordance with the 1901 law governing non-profit organisations and approved by the ‘Foundation of France’. Its office can be found at 11 bis rue de Vézelay in Paris’ 8th district. It operates in partnership with the Royaumont Foundation (https://www.royaumont.com/fr/fondation). Its President is Bruno Ory-Lavollée (https://www.bruno-ory-lavollee.eu/).
The Mahler Music Library is currently closed for refurbishment until Spring 2020.
Given its exceptional collection of resources, our association works in close collaboration with the Media Library. Projects concerning the reopening of the establishment are currently under discussion. To find out more about the Mahler Music Library: http://www.mediathequemahler.org/
