Forbidden Music: The Forgotten Composers of the Interwar Period Online

When: Wed., Dec. 2, 7 p.m. 2020
Virtual lecture by Daniel Vnukowski with live music performance.

The lecture begins with the political upheavals that had swept over Central Europe in 1848, through the Secessionist and Expressionist movements in art, ending shortly after WWII. It also examines many of the unique musical styles that were at play during the 19th Century, such as Romantic lyricism and the great song tradition in Vienna. Live performances of solo piano works and piano arrangements will take place from overlooked corners of the repertoire, with music selections from better-known composers such as A. Schoenberg and A. Zemlinsky, as well as largely forgotten composers such as K. Rathaus and R. Ryterband.
