This unique concert celebrates some extraordinary music written in exile by Jewish composer Hans Gál (1890–1987), who was forced to flee Germany when the Nazis came to power. Nachtmusik for soprano and male choir (1933) was composed shortly after Gál’s departure from Mainz, while the brilliant comic revue What a Life! (1940) was written when Gál had made it to Britain but found himself interned on the Isle of Man as an ‘enemy alien’.
The concert will be preceded at 6.30pm by a discussion of his music.
