Exile as rescue and dead end. The composers Leopold Spinner and Julius Schloss portrayed by Juan Allende-Blin
Until the moment when Leopold Spinner had to flee to London in 1939 he took lessons from Anton Webern. In London he entered the publishing company Boosey & Hawkes, and over the years he advanced to Chief Editor. Julius Schloss, who had studied with Alban Berg, was less lucky. His career in exile ended in a blind alley. He was imprisoned in Dachau concentration camp for a couple of weeks, then he managed to find exile in Shanghai (1939) and later in the United States (1948). He did survive, but never gained a remarkable position as a musician after 1938.
Juan Allende-Blin (picture) is one of the pioneers in the field of research on exiled musicians. He will describe these two most different biographies and give an introduction to the music.
