Alfred Schlee: Publisher and enabler of modern music
On the occasion of the 120th brithday of Alfred Schlee, Gertraud Cerha and Thomas Daniel Schlee, reminisce within the framework of a flashback conversation about the work of the many-sided music publisher. Numerous dedications, personal letters, compositions, and (sound) documents, which have been housed in the Archive of the Contemporaries (Archiv der Zeitgenossen), give testimony to Alfred Schlee’s close relationship to “his” composers. Afterwards, the Ernst Krenek Institute invites you to a concert that likewises takes place in the newly designed Salon Krenek (formerly the Ernst Krenek Forum). The exhibition “As a guest of Ernst Krenek (1900–1991)” can also be viewed.
