Longing for Vienna

Together with the singers Rafael Fingerlos and Paul Schweinester, we focus on Jewish composers who had to leave Vienna due to the antisemitic oppression of the Nazi regime, but whose love for the city remained undiminished in their exile. They thought of their hometown with great longing and nostalgia, a fact clearly reflected in their works.

The Seven Deadly Sins

This concert programme combines compositions by Jewish composers which are very different, but all share a strong spiritual vein. We dedicate ourselves to three extraordinary works from the first half of the 20th century by Darius Milhaud, Kurt Weill and Leonard Bernstein. The well-known Austrian mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager appears in two very different roles.

I'm a Stranger Here Myself

“I’m a Stranger Here Myself“ – the title of the well-known song from the musical comedy One Touch of Venus (1943) by Kurt Weill could hardly be more befitting for our concert project in which we focus on composers whose religion and ancestry were once rejected in Austria and Germany, who were ostracized and finally driven to emigration. Together with Angelika Kirchschlager, we trace Kurt Weill’s biography, making emigration palpable and audible in music.
