Music & Ideas event at the Royal College of Music

Thursday 30 September from 5:15pm in the Performance Hall.


Norbert Meyn considers how migration shapes music and performs songs written by émigré musicians.


The session draws on recent research about migration and mobility in the humanities. It challenges us to reflect on how music is often perceived as belonging to nations or places, and how this might be marginalising music by migrants.


Norbert, with pianist Christopher Gould, will also perform songs by Mátyás Seiber (1905-1960), Karl Rankl (1898-1968) and Eric Sanders (1919-2021), three émigré musicians who fled Germany and Austria in the 1930s for a new home in Britain.
