Entente musicale: Wilhelm Grosz

Reading time: 1 min. Wilhelm Grosz

Wilhelm Grosz was one of the great musical renaissance men of the 1920s. Born in Austria to a well-to-do Jewish family, he was a successful composer, conductor, pianist, music theorist and record producer – yet today, he is forgotten, far more than contemporaries of equivalent significance.

On 23 and 24 November Grosz is the subject of an academic conference that takes place at the Arnold Schönberg Center. In a lecture recital titled “Bänkel und Balladen” [cantastorias and ballads] the students of the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna present works by Arnold Schönberg, Wilhelm Grosz and Hanns Eisler.
