Concert with

Saved – Exile in Hollywood

Millions of people of a whole continent had to fear for their lives after the National Socialists came to power in Germany, and even more after the regime began to take over by force of arms in all directions. Millions of people lost their lives. A few managed to escape to safety, but many nonetheless could not be spared from seclusion and economic hardship. But it was the exiles who stirred up Hollywood, helping to build a sustainable peaceful industry: the film industry. First-rate musicians acted as catalysts to revitalise the entire sector. For it was film music – containing knowledge of the psychological “secret juices” post-Richard Wagner – that helped guarantee the success of a film. One thinks one can hear the sense of relief of being saved from the clutches of war and persecution in the music of those who fled Europe, even outside the film scores. A celebration of those who had the good fortune to be born twice, so to speak. Where will the Hollywood of man-made, global climate change be?

Mindful experience of music

We would like to invite you to dive into inner worlds for a few minutes right before the concert begins.  Appropriate mindfulness exercises help relax the mind and body, sharpen the senses, and feel boundlessness.

Concert tickets for € 20 are normally available in the RSB visitor service; the mindfulness exercise is included in the price.
