S. Zweig, A. Toscanini and B. Walter, Salzburg 1934
Original letter by Stefan Zweig
Stefan Zweig Room, Hohenems
Marktstraße 5 (at the Legge Museum)
Stefan Zweig's grandfather (on the mother's side) was the joint owner and resident of the bulding now housing the Legge Museum, which is why one of its rooms is fully dedicated to the world-famous author and the music life of his time. Stefan Zweig collected music manuscripts (he also owned a few by Schubert), received important impressions from Mahler's engagement at the Vienna Hofoper and was friends with Ferruccio Busoni, Alban Berg, Arturo Toscanini and Bruno Walter. for Richard Strauss, he wrote the libretto for the opera Die schweigsame Frau.
