Lost & Found Composers

Eine neue Reihe der BAAM


BAAM aims to bring to life the stories and perspectives of composers and musicians on both sides of the Atlantic by featuring great musical works of the 20th and 21st centuries that inspire dialogue, connection, and compassion. BAAM is committed to pushing orchestral programming to evolve by focusing not only on traditional repertoire, but the lost voices, contemporary voices and underrepresented voices of today. We believe this evolution, widening representation in programming, is the first step to cultivating the younger generations of audiences and to help current audiences expand their perspective and deepen their understanding.

About the musical works:

“Entr’acte” by contemporary American female composer Caroline Shaw is a work, that despite its popular appeal, has yet to experience frequent appearances in Europe.

The world premiere of a new violin concerto by Juilliard composer Jonathan Dawe has been commissioned for this performance by the Roger Shapiro Fund for New Music.

“Concerto for String Orchestra” is a lost work by Ursula Mamlok, a jewish German-American composer who fled her Berlin home at the onset of World War II, immigrated to America, taught at the Manhattan School of Music for four decades, and later returned to Berlin at the age of 83.

“Danses Concertantes” an compelling work by Stravinsky, a composer rarely thought of as American despite his 30-year residency and citizenship.
