Former BIAAS grant recipient, Jacqueline Vansant, writes a blog entitled “A Habsburg Archduke in Hollywood!” Excerpt: If I were to ask you which Hollywood film you associate most with Austria, you’d probably say The Sound of Music without much hesitation.

A Habsburg Archduke in Hollywood!

A Habsburg Archduke in Hollywood!

By Jacqueline Vansant

If I were to ask you which Hollywood film you associate most with Austria, you’d probably say The Sound of Music without much hesitation. Yet, it is only one of over fifty films made in Hollywood that were set in Austria. And if I were to ask you to name some Austrians who worked or are working in the film capital, you might think of Arnold Schwarzenegger or Christoph Waltz or possibly such Hollywood directors as Erich von Stroheim, Josef von Sternberg, or Billy Wilder. I doubt if anyone would name Archduke Leopold of Austria.

Save the Date for Austria Symposium: September 26 - 27, 2019

Posted July 16, 2019

"This year, 2019, marks a hundred years since the end of World War I, which devastated Austria and other Central European countries. Austria in particular suffered from the lack of food and fuel leading to widespread child malnutrition. The American Relief Administration provided on average 300,000 hot meals a day to school children over a period of several years.

Bard Music Festival in New York: August 2019

Bard Music Festival in New York: August 9 - 11 and 16 - 18, 2019

Posted July 15, 2019

Leon Botstein, President of Bard College, and The Bard Music Festival received a BIAAS grant for its exploration of the life, work, and legacy of Austrian composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold. Taking place over two weekends (August 9–11 and 16–18, 2019), the festival will look at Korngold’s life on both sides of the Atlantic, from his upbringing in Austria, with a focus on how its politics and culture shaped his life, to his time in the United States, where the specific musical language developed during his time in Vienna continued to influence—and infuse—the scores he created for film. The lasting influence on U.S. culture of Korngold and other artists who emigrated from Austria will also be explored.
