Event description
Concert with Ensemble ÉMIGRÉ (Norbert Meyn, director) - Supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum London

About this event

Norbert Meyn, tenor/director, Ingrid Pearson, clarinet, Abigail Lorrimer, cello, Christopher Gould, piano

Robert Kahn, Egon Wellesz and Mátyás Seiber were well known and greatly admired by audiences in Germany, Austria and Hungary before being persecuted by the Nazi regime because of their Jewish roots and forced to emigrate in the 1930s. All of them wrote a substantial amount of music in Britain, which became their home for the rest of their lives. Ensemble Émigré aims to bring their extraordinary transnational heritage to life with engaging performances and narration. The work of the ensemble is closely connected with the AHRC-funded research project Music, Migration and Mobility at the Royal College of Music.

This concert was originally planned as a live performance at the New North London Synagogue. It will now be streamed from the Performance Hall at the Royal College of Music. The concert is kindly supported by the Austrian Cultural Forum London. We are pleased you are planning to join us online and look forward to welcoming you! After signing up you will receive an email with the youtube link for the live stream.

The concert is free of charge. Please consider making a donation towards the Ensemble Émigré Recording Fund, giving work to our musicians during this challenging time. Thank you for your support!

We would also be grateful for you feedback. Please use the comment function on Youtube or contact us by email: norbertmeyn@mac.com
