Music from Exile

For this project, Daedalus has chosen four composers forced into various forms of exile due to the cultural policies of the Third Reich. From those who were arrested and never completed the journey to exile, to those who spent the war far from home, and those who experienced internal exile by remaining within a state to which they were vocally opposed, the effect on the music produced is profound.
