Event Category:

Join us for this digital Musical Salon and enjoy Ensemble ÉMIGRÉ live in concert, presenting an innovative programme of vocal and instrumental chamber music. Experience this unique recital, bringing the extraordinary transnational heritage of composers Robert Kahn, Egon Wellesz and Mátyás Seiber to life.

The concert is free of charge. You can register for tickets by clicking here. After signing up you will receive an email with the YouTube link for the live stream.

This performance will be featuring Norbert Meyn (tenor/director), Ingrid Pearson (clarinet), Abigail Lorrimer (cello) and Christopher Gould (piano) from the Ensemble.

Robert Kahn, Egon Wellesz and Mátyás Seiber were well known and greatly admired by audiences in Germany, Austria and Hungary before being persecuted by the Nazi regime because of their Jewish roots and forced to emigrate in the 1930s. All of them wrote a substantial amount of music in Britain, which became their home for the rest of their lives. Ensemble Émigré aims to bring their extraordinary transnational heritage to life with engaging performances and narration. The work of the ensemble is closely connected with the AHRC-funded research project Music, Migration and Mobility at the Royal College of Music.

This concert was originally planned as a live performance at the New North London Synagogue. It will now be streamed from the Performance Hall at the Royal College of Music.
