Forbidden Composers: Schoenberg, Weill, Winterberg


Fri, 10/14/2016 - 09:30 to Sun, 10/16/2016 - 20:00

The Shaol and Louis Pozez Fine Arts Symposium

The 2016 Music + Festival: Arnold Schoenberg, Kurt Weill, and Hans Winterberg will present the lives and music of these three major composers under the overarching theme of “Forbidden Composers,” those whose music was banned by the Nazi regime. We will explore the lives of these composers in their native lands and their lives as immigrants in America, view the relationship between serious and popular music as exemplified in their music, and bring a new compositional voice into the general musical conversation regarding the music of the 20th century.  Special thanks to Dan Asia from the UA School of Music for organizing and directing this special Symposium & Festival.
