Vally Weigl was a pianist, composer and music therapist. She is the sister of Käthe Leichter, a Viennese women's rights activist. Vally Weigl was also the wife of Karl Weigl, an Austrian composer. After Austria was annexed by Nazi Germany, she had to flee Vienna with her family and built a new life for herself in New York. With this program, Ensemble Ultreia brings the music of Vally Weigl back to Vienna and presents it in sound and vision.
