Book Description

Jan. 1 2013

Georg Tintner is best know to music lovers for his stunning interpretations of Bruckner’s symphonies recorded by Naxos in the 1990s. He was a man who lived and breathed music. Blessed with perfect pitch, at the age of nine he was the first Jew to join the Vienna Boys’ Choic.  Later, he became immersed in the concert life of the city, rubbing shoulders with Berg, Schoenberg, and Webern, and observing the great conductors of the age.   But by the late 1930s Tintner had to flee and be eventually landed in Auckland, New Zealand.  There could  have been no greater contrast for this gifted young musician, yet he started a new life there before moving on to Australia and, much later, to Canada.

Tintner’s third wife and widow, Tanya, has documented the life of this uncompromising man and the result is a revealing window on to the artistic temperament from the person closest to him.   Out of Time is a must-read for everyone who believes in the discipline that excellence in the arts demands — and the pure joy it can bring.
