*Fritz Busch: A Career in Exile – March 3, 1933 and Beyond *

*Presented by Gary Thalheimer *

Only days after their election victory, Hitler and his NSDAP (Nazi Party)
succeeded in hounding conductor Fritz Busch out of Dresden's Saxon State
Opera, which he had led for almost a dozen years, having brought it to a
position of a world-class opera. This was to be the March 7, 1933 premiere
of a new production of Rigoletto, with Erna Berger and Paul Schoeffler.
Organized protests, and catcalls and disturbances in the auditorium greeted
his entrance and did not stop until he had left.

Shortly thereafter, he left for Denmark, then to Buenos Aires. Some of his
1936 Teatro Colon performances have survived.

In the summer of 1934 he inaugurated the Glyndebourne Festival, devoted
primarily to Mozart operas, which The Gramophone Co. recorded over a
three-year period to great acclaim – bringing this "uncharismatic"
conductor sudden international fame.

His exile also took him to Sweden and the US, including the New Opera
Company in New York in 1942, where he conducted Così fan tutte and Verdi's
Macbeth.

Postwar, he returned to guest engagements in Europe, Scandinavia, the
Edinburgh Festival and Glyndebourne, conducting Mozart and Verdi. After 18
years, he returned to Germany for a radio performance of Un Ballo in
Maschera, one of his great successes in pre-Hitler Germany. Shortly after
the 1951 Edinburgh Festival, he died in London, never having returned to
Dresden, though he had been invited to the Orchestra's 300th anniversary.

The program will include excerpts from operas and concerts with some of his
discoveries: Erna Berger, Birgit Nilsson, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Ina
Souez.

Gary Thalheimer has been a record collector since 1942, a tape recordist
since March 1954, and written articles and reviews going back to Music in
Japan Letters for the Saturday Review of the 1950s, as well as for the ARSC
Journal (including one on the Fritz Busch in Dresden set). After a career
in direct marketing, he founded Gary Thal Music, Inc. to sell CDs and DVDs
to music libraries, which he continues to do. He also writes and compiles a
monthly Newsletter and Bulletin of New (Classical CD & DVD) Releases,
available on an annual subscription basis at $59.95 a year.

He has been an ARSC member since 1990 and serves as program chair of the
New York chapter. Gary's first ARSC presentation was at the Rochester
meeting in 1992, on the Teatro Colon Archives. His major collecting
interest is historic recordings, especially from the inter-war years. He is
also extremely concerned about the proper preservation of historic recorded
material. For this purpose he has specified a $1,000,000 bequest to the
Sonic Arts Department of City College of New York (CCNY) to establish a
graduate program and a tenured faculty position to teach Preservation and
Transfer Techniques, a subject that most organizations and programs tend to
overlook.
