Join us for a pre-concert talk exploring Milein Cosman's life and works, led by Dr Ines Schlenker, Julian Hogg and Professor Norbert Meyn.
Dr Ines Schlenker, an independent art historian with a special interest in émigré art. Her book Capturing Time, a biography of Milein Cosman, publishes in February 2019.
Julian Hogg is the former Chair of The Cosman Keller Art and Music Trust, which aims to preserve, catalogue, promote, develop and publish for the public benefit the work of Hans Keller and Milein Cosman.
RCM Professor Norbert Meyn is a professional singer, coach and project curator. One of his recent outputs, Singing a Song in a Foreign Land, is a major research and performance project focusing on musicians who emigrated from central Europe as a result of Nazi persecution during the 1930s and 40s.
The panel is introduced by Richard Martin of the Royal College of Music Museum, who led the project to catalogue and digitise Milein Cosman’s artworks following the donation to the RCM.
This talk is free to those with tickets to The Gift of Music: Cosman Collection.
