Morning Concert:
The Music of Berthold Goldschmidt

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 115 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

Charles Amirkhanian explores the life and music of Berthold Goldschmidt (b. 1903). Goldschmidt is a German born composer who emigrated to England when Hitler came to power. There he existed in the margins of the musical world until his work was discovered by a number of younger composers in the early 1980s. He then experienced a sort of renaissance in which his works were performed and recorded, and also during which he composed a number of new works. This program includes a telephone interview with the 89 year old composer from London as well as interviews with a number of his relatives that live in the Bay Area. The program concludes with a promotion for the production of "The Flying Dutchman' by the Wagner Society of Northern California.
