Mangold, Carl (Ludwig Amand)

Mangold, Carl (Ludwig Amand), German conductor and composer, brother of (Johann) Wilhelm Mangold; b. Darmstadt, Oct. 8, 1813; d. Oberstdorf im Allgau, Aug. 5,1889. He studied at the Paris Cons, with Berton and Bordogni. Returning to Darmstadt, he became a violinist in the Court Orch. and, from 1848 to 1869, was court music director and also conducted various choral societies there. He wrote an opera, Tannhäuser, which was produced in Darmstadt on May 17, 1846, only a few months after the premiere of Wagner’s great work. In order to escape disastrous comparisons, the title was changed to Der getreue Eckart, the libretto revised, and the new version was produced posthumously in Darmstadt on Jan. 17, 1892. Mangold also wrote 4 more operas, Das Köhlermädchen, oder Das Tournier zu Linz (1843), Die Fischerin (1845), Dornröschen (1848), and Gudrun (1851). Other works include 8 syms., concertos, several oratorios, masses, cantatas, various choral works, many of which were popular in his day, particularly the “concert drama” Die Hermannsschlacht (Mainz, 1845), chamber music, some 375 songs, and piano pieces.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
