The Austrian Centre: Commemorative Concert

The Austrian Centre: Commemorative Concert

Thursday 13 October 2016, 6.30pm | Austrian Cultural Forum London

Following the unveiling of the green plaque at 124 Westbourne Terrace we invite guests to the ACF London for a special commemorative concert. The opening of the Austrian Centre on March 11, 1939 was celebrated with a concert programme consisting of chamber music for string quartet and a selection of German Lieder.

Ensemble EMIGRE, based at the Royal College of Music and connected with the research and performance project ‘Singing a Song in a Foreign Land’ presents a concert of a similar nature, incorporating elements of the original programme as well as compositions by Austrian musicians Karl Rankl, Hans Gal and Ferdinand Rauter who played an active role in the life of the Austrian Centre. The programme is curated and presented by Norbert Meyn (RCM).
