Since the year 2012, the association EntArteOpera has dedicated itself to holding yearly festivals celebrating the lively culture of remembrance and the revival of the extensive opus of forgotten, ostracized, persecuted by the Nazi regime, exiled or even murdered composers. The present recording’s main focus is on songs and works by the female composers Henriette Bosmans, Vally Weigl, Charlotte Schlesinger and Vitezslava Kapralova, with the addition of the “Love Song” H 259 by Bohuslav Martinu. Hermine Haselböck, mezzo soprano, Franz Bartolomey, cello and pianist Clemens Zeilinger take you into the passionate and at the same time poetic sound worlds of four extraordinary female composers whose music is heard as rarity and discovery.
