Music, Migration and Mobility - The Legacy of Migrant Musicians from Nazi Europe in Britain
First Project Symposium
10am to 4pm (exact timing tbc),
Austrian Cultural Forum London, 28 Rutland Gate, Knightsbridge, London SW7 1PQ
This one-day symposium brings together the international research team of the Music, Migration and Mobility project and a number of invited scholars in a series of lectures, workshops and discussions. It will present first findings from the project’s research about the history of the Anglo-Austrian Music Society and Glyndebourne Opera as well as the musical legacy of emigre composers and musicians like Hans Gal, Egon Wellesz, the Amadeus Quartet and many others. The symposium will aim to discuss what can be learned from the experience of these musicians who came to Britain as refugees, and how their musical legacies can be celebrated today.
Speakers include Norbert Meyn and Beth Snyder (Royal College of Music), Peter Adey
(RHUL) and Nils Grosch (Salzburg University).
