Because of German anti-Semitism, the Cologne-born pianist and composer Maria Herz emigrated to Great Britain around 1900, where she organised concerts of her own works. By chance, she was back in Cologne at the outbreak of World War I, where she had to stay. After the death of her husband, Maria Herz intensified her compositional activities here and took further lessons with Philipp Jarnach until the performance bans of the Nazi state forced her to flee to England again in 1935. Guests at musica reanimata are her grandson Albert Herz and the executor of her estate Heinrich Aerni. The Cologne Asasello Quartet will present the composer's string quartet works.
