Synopsis

Album Description
A unique 2-CD set of music by those German and Austrian Jewish composers who fled to England during the Nazi era and remained there. The booklet discusses their difficulties in being accepted and integrated into the British musical establishment, to the point where they had to write under pseudonyms to avoid being passed over for contests and awards. A unique view of a long-neglected chapter in musical history.
