Exilarte invited by the Alte Schmiede in Vienna – Live-Stream Concert | March 5, 2021

Invited by the Alte Schmiede, one of the top addresses for contemporary music in Austria with a long tradition, the Exilarte Center at the mdw is presenting a live-stream concert that establishes a connection between composers who were forced into exile by the Nazi-regime and works which were created in the 21st century and deal with the issue of displacement and flight. Repression and censorship in the former USSR will also be addressed in this concert through a composition by Elena Firsova. Works by NS-expelled composers Ursula Mamlok, Ruth Schönthal, Alexandre Tansmann and Walter Bricht, who all found a second home in the USA, are juxtaposed with newly created compositions by Gabriele Proy (world premiere) and Helmut Jasbar.
