A new start after the "Anschluss"? Vally and Karl Weigl

After the Annexation of Austria in 1938, according to the racist law Vally and Karl Weigl were labelled "jewish". They found refuge in New York. Until then, Karl Weigl's (1881-1949) music had received regular performances by famous conductors and ensembles. While in exile, he continued composing, but did not succeed in starting a new career in the US. Vally Weigl (1894-1982) composed with increasing intensity and created an extensive ouvre.
