  Mahler, Alma (1879-1964)

Alma Mahler was prevented from being active as a composer by the disapproval of her husband. She only completed Five Leider (1910) during her marriage to Gustav Mahler and some others during her second marriage. Her songs have strong, often accented, chromatic harmony, used to their full expressive capacity.
