“… my life only took on content when I began to seriously concentrate on music […] – I was completely on my own…” (Hugo Kauder)

The concert will feature music for string orchestra by Eric Zeisl, Hugo Kauder, Julius Bürger, Mieczysław Weinberg and Gideon Klein. You can also enjoy lively music from Fritz Kreisler and Anita Bild. Never-before-heard archive treasures await you.

The Alma Mahler Philharmonic stands up for composers who have been unjustly forgotten. Part of their commitment is the (re)discovery of the music of exiled composers, especially those who were expelled from Germany and Austria during National Socialism and whose music was banned.

The Alma Mahler Philharmonic is a non-profit chamber orchestra consisting of more than 30 young musical talents. The program will be conducted by Clara Bauer Wagsteiner, a graduate of the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. The pianist and musicologist Karin Wagner will guide you through the evening with background information and exciting details.
