Maria Herz

Maria Herz (1878-1950) - Composer between Germany and England

Maria Herz, pianist and composer from Cologne, emigrated to England already around 1900 because of strong anti-semitic tendecies in Germany. In England she organised concerts, sometimes also performing her own music. When WWI broke out she happened to be in Cologne. It was meant to be just a visit but because of the war she could not return, and even after the war she stayed in Germany. When her husband died in 1920 she had to struggle to earn a living but nevertheless resumed composing. For some time she studied with Philipp Jarnach. In 1935 she fled to England for the second time.
In our lecture recital her grandson Albert Herz and Heinrich Aerni (Zentralbibliothek Zurich, where Herz's estate is kept) will be our guests.
