On 6 October 1909, he married Mark Twain's daughter Clara Clemens, a singer who appeared with him in recital. From 1910 to 1914, he was conductor of the Munich Konzertverein (later known as the Munich Philharmonic). He settled in the US, and in 1918 was appointed the founding director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, while still maintaining his life as a concert pianist.
