Arnold Schoenberg in Los Angeles - the 1900's

from Arnold Schoenberg Letters, page 264:

Between 1925 and 1935 I did not dare to read or to listen to Mahler’s music. I was afraid that my aversion to it in a preceding period might return. Fortunately, when I heard in Los Angeles a moderately satisfactory performance of the Second [Mahler's Second Symphony], I was just as enchanted as ever before; it had lost none of its persuasiveness.
