Lost and found - The Rediscovery of the Musical Genius of Ingolf Dahl
The Composer Ingolf Dahl:
He was the son of a Swedish mother and a German father of Jewish origin. Dahl started his career as a pianist, conductor and composer growing up as a teenager in Hamburg. In 1931, he began to study composition with Philipp Jarnach in Cologne. Being confronted with growing antisemitism in Germany he moved to Zürich in 1932 to study at the conservatory.
His studies were quickly followed by engagements at the Zürich municipal theatre that is today the Zürich Opera House.
In 1939 the 27-year old Dahl followed his fiancee to Los Angeles, where he settled down as professor at USC.
Since 2016 the piano duo Haufe/Ahmels has been concentrating on the publication and revival of the oeuvre of Ingolf Dahl .In 2017, they premiered and recorded Four Intervals, followed by the Rondo (2018) and the publication of the entire sheet music for Ingolf Dahl's piano works for four hands.
The evening will feature Ingolf Dahl's compositions for piano in the context of works by his friends and peers, Darius Milhaud, Alexandre Tansman, Paul Hindemith and Arnold Schoenberg.
