Gottfried von Einem: Cosmopolitan Musician

Gottfried von Einem (1918–1996) was widely considered as one of the most outstanding personalities from Austria. His compositions were premiered by many prominent artists in several European countries, in the USA and in Japan, respectively. Nowadays his works are still performed all over the world. On the occasion of his 100th birthday, the Viennese State Opera and the Theater an der Wien are going to stage two of his operas.

Nowadays, two decades after his death we know that von Einem as many assumed was not one of the last composers of the old style but one of the first postmodernists and intellectual father of a new generation.

The exhibition documents von Einem’s significance and his international influence and shows  the interconnections of his personality and his compositions with literature, arts and the music of his time. All those aspects will be presented in our exhibition. Von Einem has been acknowledged as an important personality of Austrian cultural life and can now be experienced as cosmopolitan musician as well.
