Chamber music | Lieder & singing | Classic | Concert | Lecture | Adults
Nowadays we can perform or listen to music from anywhere around the world without any restrictions. But authoritarian and totalitarian regimes can proscribe artists or their work for ideological, racist or antisemitic reasons. There are plenty of examples. The Nazis erased every aspect of Mozart’s work which might possibly point to his membership of the Freemasons. Because of his father’s Jewish heritage, Erwin Schulhoff was not allowed to perform during the years of Nazi terror, while Antonín Dvořák’s music was greeted with some reservations due to his Slavic background. Iván Eröd left his native Hungary following the suppression of the 1956 uprising, because of the way the communist regime stigmatised avantgarde music.
Please note: This production replaces two previously scheduled events: NOVECENTO with Frank Hoffmann, and Martin Gasselsberger ‘s appearance as part of the KAMMERSTÜCKE (CHAMBER PIECES) cycle.
