Hans Gal’s Violin Concerto was premiered in 1933, just weeks before Hitler came to power. The concert was conducted by the great Fritz Busch, and Georg Kulenkampff, then the most famous violinist in Germany, was the soloist- at that moment, Gal stood atop the musical world.
Less than 100 days later, he was unemployed and unemployable. His music was banned. The Violin Concerto was not played again for over 70 years.
