Dieses eBook: "Harry Graf Kessler: Tagebücher 1918-1937 (Komplettausgabe)" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Harry Clemens Ulrich Kessler, seit 1879 von Kessler, seit 1881 Graf (von) Kessler (1868 - 1937), war ein deutscher Kunstsammler, Mäzen, Schriftsteller, Publizist und Diplomat. Kessler führte 57 Jahre (1880-1937) Tagebuch, wobei er grossen Wert auf Vollständigkeit legte. Dieses Tagebuch darf mit Recht als Kesslers literarischer Nachlass bezeichnet werden. Zuletzt hat das Deutschen Literaturarchiv in Marbach das Tagebuch in neun Bänden veröffentlicht. Sie enthalten umfangreiche Register der im Text vorkommenden Orte, Werke und Personen mit teilweise umfangreichen Erläuterungen. Am Ende werden unter anderem die Namen von etwa 12.000 mehr oder weniger bedeutenden Zeitgenossen, von Sarah Bernhardt und Jean Cocteau über Otto von Bismarck und Albert Einstein bis George Bernard Shaw und Josephine Baker, aufgelistet sein, die Kesslers Ruf als "Menschensammler" begründen. Kritiker halten diese Texte denn auch für "ein Fest für Literaturnarren und Wissbegierige nach Geschichte und Geschichten". Kessler macht in seinen Aufzeichnungen "die sinnliche Erfassung von Phänomenen zum Credo. Seine Wahrnehmungs-Erfahrungen", so die Kritik, "tragen nicht selten Züge einer Experimentalsituation, einer Inszenierung"

Karl Bohm's only studio version of the work was recorded in 1958. When Deutsche Grammophon originally planned to record the work, there were already two rival versions on the market: the Decca recording under Erich Kleiber and EMI's version under Herbert von Karajan. Karajan's recording was made in December 1956 and should have included Irmgard Seefried as Octavian and Rita Streich as Sophie, but in both cases cast changes became necessary: Seefried was replaced by the young Christa Ludwig, and pregnancy forced Rita Streich to withdraw. As a result, Deutsche Grammophon was able to use both these singers for its own recording exactly two years later. It boasts a wonderful cast, with the full-throated Marianne Schech as the Marschallin, Irmgard Seefried bringing a range of colour to the 'trouser' role of Octavian, Rita Streich light and exquisite as Sophie, and a rounded, lyrical portrait of Faninal from Fischer-Dieskau. The recording also reunited Bohm with his 'old' orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, an orchestra often referred to as the Zauberharfe or Magic Harp for the fluent and airborne quality of its sound
