Georg Friedrich Haas at Columbia University

Reading time: 1 min. Georg Friedrich Haas

“July 1, 2013 marks Georg Friedrich Haas’s first day as a resident of the United States, where he will join the composition faculty at Columbia University. This move puts him squarely in the historical tradition of European composers such as Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schoenberg, and Igor Stravinsky, all of whom moved to the United States and became part of the musical life of America.”

The austrian cultural forum new york celebrates this with a concert dedicated to Haas on 2 July. On the programme: Georg Friedrich Haas’s Atthis, Berg, Webern, and Schönberg.

Find out more about Atthis and listen to an excerpt.
