The Dartington Summer School of Music

Garnham, A. M. (2024) The Dartington Summer School of Music. Music, Migration and Mobility Online Resource: Émigré Musicians from Nazi Europe


In October 2022 the Dartington Summer School Foundation donated to the British Library the archive of Summer School papers and images curated by Jeremy Wilson. This has allowed the Royal College of Music’s Music, Migration and Mobility team to study another lasting post-war British institution in which migration and mobility have played a central role. Like Glyndebourne and the Edinburgh Festival, the original inspiration for the Summer School came from a central European émigré – in this case the pianist Artur Schnabel – and many other émigrés were crucial to its success, forming a bridge between cultures divided by war and establishing musical standards far in excess of what was normal in Britain at the time. **** This article is available as part of the Music, Migration and Mobility online resource at the Official URL given below. ****
