Rediscovering Vocal Gems of the Early Twentieth Century
(*June 7, 2015 at Songfest at the Colburn School)
SongFest announces a collaboration with The OREL Foundation to present SongFest fellows in a recital dedicated to composers whose music was suppressed during the Nazi Regime. The program will be developed in consultation with James Conlon and The Ziering-Conlon Initiative for Recovered Voices at The Colburn School and inspired by Maestro Conlon's Recovered Voices project at LA Opera. This music holds a special significance for Los Angeles as many of these composers, such as Hanns Eisler, Erich Korngold, Ernst Toch and Erich Zeisl, emigrated to the area and profoundly influenced Southern California's musical culture.
