ALBUM LAUNCH: ‘A Journey in Exile : The Lieder of Julius Burger’

Cardiff University Concert Hall
31 Corbett Road, Cardiff. CF10 3EB
Julius Burger was a gifted Viennese musician, conductor, repetiteur, and composer poised to make his mark on early 20th Century music, that is, until the rise of antisemitism and the Nazi party forever altered his life and took him on a journey in exile, across continents and cultures. It wouldn’t be until he was in his 90s that he would finally fulfil a lifelong dream of hearing his own compositions performed.
This album represents the first ever recordings of Julius Burger’s lieder, spanning from 1915 to his final piece in 1988. These pieces show a master of his craft and a legacy from a world which was thought to have been lost.
Launch events will feature an introduction by baritone and ORT Marks Fellow Ryan Hugh Ross, a screening of the documentary ‘Julius Burger : A Journey in Exile’, and live performances of selections from upcoming release – many of which will receive their world premieres.
