1/20 Today in Weird Music History, Weber x 3: Both Gustav Mahler and Paul Hindemith pay homage to German composer Karl Maria von Weber. 1) Mahler premieres his edition of Weber’s Die Drei Pintos in 1888.  2) In 1944, Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis on a Theme by Weber is premiered.  3) Also today in 1888, Mahler is scheming for a way to run away with Weber’s granddaughter-in-law.
