NEW BIOGRAPHY: Out of Time – The Vexed Life of Georg Tintner

April 1, 2011

ISBN 9781742582566
University of Western Australia Press
April 2011


Georg Tintner is best known to music lovers for his stunning interpretations of Bruckner’s symphonies recorded by Naxos in the 1990s. Yet this was the late flowering of a career disrupted/displaced by the Second World War and its aftermath.

Tintner lived and breathed music. At nine he was the first Jew to join the Vienna Boys Choir, and after studying with Felix Weingartner and Joseph Marx he became Kapellmeister at the Volksoper at 19. But in 1938 Tintner had to flee, and he eventually landed in 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, Tanya, explores with clear-eyed tenderness the privations that this uncompromising man had to confront to survive in the modern world. The result is a revealing window onto 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.

Out of Time is available from Amazon.com in the USA, Canada, UK, Japan, France and Germany.

Out of Time is a reminder to us all that we once had living amongst us a true musical giant.” (Richard Gill)

Out of Time balances the tragic and tender with some extremely funny moments that constitute the life and work of the true musician.” (Roger Woodward)
