The Lost Chord: February 4 - Staying Power

Feb 4, 2018

Is it really “emigration” when you don’t go anywhere?  We’ll hear music by flagrantly anti-fascist composers who remained in Germany during the Nazi regime.  This type of opposition was described by Thomas Mann as “inner emigration.”  The composers in question did not join the Nazi Party.  On the contrary, they were condemned, their music labeled degenerate and banned from performance.  Tune in to learn more about Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling and Karl Amadeus Hartmann, this Sunday at 10 pm.
