Gigs at Grainger 2: The Fortunes of Exile

Robyn Archer - Curator & Singer
Michael Morley - Piano
George Butrumlis - Accordion & banjo
Matthew Carey - Conductor

In a rare collaboration with the ASO, Robyn Archer explores German composers whose careers were dramatically interrupted by the advent of National Socialism in the 1930s. Many who stayed did not survive. Those who fled into exile (the USA, Britain and elsewhere) met varied fortunes, some good, some bad.


Acclaimed worldwide for her performances of German Cabaret, Robyn will be joined by Michael Morley (piano and translations) and George Butrumlis (accordion and banjo).


The concert will include songs and music by Wilhelm Grosz, Freidrich Hollaender, Hanns Eisler and Mischa Spoliansky.


You will be transported to an iconic moment in history.
