Throughout 2018 the Republic of Austria will look back and commemorate several years of crucial historical importance: 1848 the year of civic-democratic revolution, 1918 the end of WWI and the foundation of the Republic of Austria and 1938 the Anschluss to Nazi-Germany on 12 March.
Dorothea McEwan (Warburg Institute, University of London) will give a lecture to mark 80 years since the Anschluss.
Following her presentation, Ensemble Émigré (Norbert Meyn, tenor and Lucy Colquhoun, piano) will perform a concert of music by émigré composers from Austria and Germany living in Britain as well as a selection of German Lieder.
The talk is organised by the Research Centre for German & Austrian Exile Studies and the Ingeborg Bachmann Centre for Austrian Literature.
