We started out wanting it to be all American music, but ended up using some songs from an earlier concert. The Eisler and Castelnuovo-Tedesco would fit well on an “Exile in America” concert along with Korgold, Krenek, Schönberg etc, as they both came there from Europe during the Third Reich years. Our subject doesn’t run cleanly through, but we hadn’t had a lot of time to plan. Using this as a base program we can probably clean it up and perform it again elsewhere, and we may do that.
