Concert at the KUB

Konzert im KUB

31 July 2018 – 8.00 pm

A portrait of one of the most fascinating composers of the 20th century, Berthold Goldschmidt – with a screening of an award-winning documentary about him and the performance of a number of his piano works. Goldschmidt’s promising career was brutally interrupted by the National Socialist regime. In spite of winning a competition in London, where he subsequently lived in exile, his opera Beatrice Cenci was not performed. After the Second World War his musical style was condemned on aesthetic grounds. Decades later Goldschmidt, one of the last composers of his generation, was rediscovered and began to compose again. Yet it is not with bitterness but with humour, and an exceptional memory, that the composer looks back on his life in this personal film portrait. After the screening the pianist and violinist Kolja Lessing will play music by Goldschmidt and his contemporaries. Few musicians have worked so closely with the composer as Lessing, who gave concerts of his music with the composer himself.
