Wien, du allein

The third and concluding 2-CD set of works by one of the last surviving members of the generation of composers the Nazis sought to extinguish, Walter Arlen, presents short songs for piano solo as well as songs with soprano, describing different touchstones and experiences of his life. Atrocities like the Kristallnacht 1938 in Vienna find their musical expression in his works, as well as journeys to distant, exotic places and expericences with people; and time and again art and music are the ingredients to Walter Arlens life after his eviction by the Nazis. Polish-Canadian pianist Daniel Wnukowski and Texan-born Rebecca Nelsen interpret songs of utmost inner emotions and reflections on human history and life. Polish-Canadian pianist Daniel Wnukowski was trained at the Lake Como International Piano Academy in Italy where he worked with distinguished artists such as Dmitri Bashkirov, Menahem Pressler, Claude Frank, and William Grant Naboré, at the Peabody Institute of Baltimore under the guidance of Leon Fleisher and at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with Graham Johnson and Ronan O'Hora. He has performed throughout Europe, North America, South America and Asia in prestigious concert halls with many orchestras, including the Polish Radio Orchestra, Sinfonia Varsovia, Windsor Symphony and Southfield Symphony with conducters such as Jerzy Maksymiuk, Alain Trudel and David Amos. He has also performed in numerous International Festivals such as «Chopin and His Europe» in Warsaw, Poland; Festival Dei Due Mondi in Spoleto, Italy; Chopiniana in Buenos Aires, Argentina; and the Pre-LSO Concert Series in London, UK. After studies at Vienna's University of Music and the Performing Arts on a Fulbright scholarship, Texan soprano Rebecca Nelsen's career was launched with critically acclaimed performances with the Neue Oper Wien. Ms. Nelsen's career has led her to other important guest engagements in internationally acclaimed houses and festivals including principal roles at the Bavarian State Opera, Aalto Theater Essen, Semperoper Dresden, Oper Köln, Teatro La Fenice, Garsington Opera, the Bregenzer Festspiele and the prestigious Munich Biennale. She is an active recording artist and has CDs out with the ORF Label, Oehms Classics, with the CPO Label, and with the Gramola Label (Walter Arlen Songs). Ms. Nelsen is currently an ensemble member at the Wiener Volksoper.
