Moross never condescended to cinema But despite some recognition including a Oscar nomination for The Big Country , Moross found Hollywood hostile turf for an independent composer, and his visits became increasingly rare.
One happy intersection of these two media is a concert piece derived from a film Moross scored in Presented here in its concert incarnation Its premiere was performed by Foote at the piano and the Kneisel Quartet, its dedicatee.

The Largo is a curiosity because of its use of the triangle—a rare phenomenon in chamber music of the 19th century. Further, any freedom they may have had ended with the Zhdanov Decree, aimed at suppressing artistic self-expression. Many concert and theater administrators refused to program his music, fearful of the consequences of supporting an artist denounced by the regime.
He suffered censorship until his death in A dramatic first movement is followed by a gorgeous, poignant Andante , and the Trio concludes with a rhythmic Allegro vivace. Its premiere was performed in by violinist David Oistrakh, cellist Sergey Knushevitsky, and the composer at the piano. From to , he worked under Mahler as solo performance coach. When the Nazis occupied Austria in , Weigl emigrated to the United States, together with his second wife, Valerie Vally , and their son.
His 11 years of exile were difficult even though he obtained a number of increasingly important teaching positions: at the Hartt School of Music, Brooklyn College, Boston Conservatory, and the Philadelphia Academy of Music. Weigl died in New York in You once said to me that I often seem like a child, and I suddenly got inspired and knocked off around 30 quaint little pieces I selected twelve and called them Kinderszenen.
You will enjoy them, although you will need to forget you are a virtuoso when you play them. His efforts, however, came to naught. Not least of all, Schumann composed obsessively. Before leaving Vienna in April , he had completed several compositions, including the Kinderszenen. Schubert was Viennese through and through. He was born in Himmelpfortgrund, a district of Vienna, he lived much of his life in the city, and he died there.
When he was away from Vienna, he would soon miss it. He would pine for his beloved Vienna and its life, his friends, and the theaters and cafes. If it was your idea, then I must congratulate you, but Kirchner has done a remarkable job. Kirchner was universally admired as a marvelous musician—a celebrated pianist, organist, and composer in his own right—but he could not maintain a job or marriage, and his gambling and extravagance led to destitution in his later years, so much so that his publisher and friends, including Brahms, bailed him out of debt.
Born in Hamburg into a Lutheran family, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, beginning in until his death in Brahms met Robert and Clara Schumann in , and the three became lifelong close friends. Ten years later he joined the faculty at the Vienna Conservatory, teaching there for 37 years—harmony, at first, then theory and counterpoint.
Brahms thought highly of his work, being particularly impressed by the Symphony No. When he died in , a few days after his 80th birthday, he was given a grave of honor in the Central Cemetery in Vienna. They were open to the public but attended mostly by critics. I wish that I could have known him personally.
When it was given at a Monday Popular Concert in December it had a thin audience, critics clearly seeing an avant garde work frightening them away. The composer from whom he has obtained most of his inspiration in the present instance is undoubtedly Brahms, but in some respects he has gone beyond his model Mr Parry merges subjects and details together with irritating persistence Finding the insurance industry totally unsuitable, he turned to music full time.
It was broadcast on BBC4 in Her husband died in , before her 20th birthday, leaving her with 2 young children. Widowed, she assumed the role of regent until her son and heir reached his majority. During her enlightened reign, which lasted till , she proved herself a talented stateswoman. She also transformed her court and its environs into the most influential cultural center in Germany through the creation of the Musenhof , or court of muses. It was known throughout Europe for its rich musical and cultural life, and attracted artists, composers, and writers—leaders in the German Enlightenment, including Friedrich Schiller and Goethe, who became her friend.
The literati wrote poems and texts for the songs of the new German opera, the Singspiel. When her regency ended, she devoted herself to culture and also toured Italy with Goethe. She died in Her teacher Carl Lowe opened her world to Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, which led to her own compositional style that followed outstanding classical models. In she organized her first concert exclusively featuring her own work at the Berlin Playhouse, and continued to do so for the next decade to critical acclaim.
This helped secure her place as a successful composer. Three of her part songs won a prize in in Copenhagen. Her brother was Tor Aulin, founder of the Aulin Quartet, which specialized in the Classical repertory and performed the works of Scandinavian composers, including Berwald, Stenhammar, and Grieg, his friend. Born in Rastatt in , the prodigy was fortunate to have supportive parents.
Her father, especially, gave her the best education possible and even tutored her in subjects not offered to women in schools, and he also taught her the piano. Subsequently she studied composition with Johannn Kalliwoda and piano with Clara Schumann. In she sought the advice of Hans von Bulow, who urged her to move to a larger city to expand her artistic opportunities.
Her works won several prizes and were well regarded by Brahms, Liszt, Berlioz, Woldemar Bargiel, Joachim, and the critic Eduard Hanslick, among others. Rather, teach them the same things that are taught to boys. Grow accustomed to a system that has this same fundamental condition for every education, and then see what [girls] can do after acquiring technical skills and intellectual independence, rather than entrench yourselves against female capabilities by limiting the education of women!

Delighted with the motet, Mozart copied the choir parts after perusing the autographs. He then went to Potsdam and returned to Leipzig on 8 May. This time, Mozart presented a concert of his own compositions at the Leipzig Gewandhaus on 12 May. The concert, however, had not been widely publicized and was a financial fiasco as it was poorly attended.
