Abstract

This paper discussed the practical challenges of representing the history and works of Jewish refugee musicians from Nazi-Europe in the world of concert promotion and public performance. Reflecting on his experience as a practice-based researcher at the Royal College of Music and director of Ensemble Émigré, Norbert spoke about recent projects featuring music by Robert Kahn (1865-1951), Hans Gál (1890-1987), Egon Wellesz (1885-1974) and Peter Gellhorn (1912-2004), and explored themes including ascription of identity, national “ownership” or belonging, transcultural processes and loss.
