VA - Amerika - Exil und Heimat 1930 - 1950

It is hard to imagine where American culture would be today without the contributions of Hitler and his nazi dictatorship — that is, without the thousands of creatively gifted refugees who fled these murderers.
A good many cultural historians and writers have explored this meaty subject from different angles since Anthony Heilbut’s 1983 landmark, “Exiled in Paradise” (still a good book on the topic).

This compilation features the work of European composers forced to the USA because of the expanding Nazi dictatorship and the work of their american collegues in these times. It´s an introduction into the work of emigre composers of the 1930s and 1940s like Hanns Eisler, Paul Hindemith, Bela Bartok and Kurt Weill and american artists like George Gershwin and John Cage.
