Please join us for *Zweig at Fredonia 2016 <https://zweigatfredonia.com/>*
to be held on the campus of The State University of New York at Fredonia,
3-5 October 2016. Events will highlight the connection between Austrian
Jewish author Stefan Zweig (1881-1942) and the music of his time, notably
his relationship with German composer Richard Strauss (1864-1949) – Zweig
provided the libretto for Strauss’s opera *Die schweigsame Frau*. Offerings
include a panel discussion led by noted musicologist Dr. Matthew Werley
(Oxford) on the burgeoning relationship between Zweig and Strauss in the
politically volatile environment of mid-1930s Europe; a performance of
selections from Strauss’s opera by Fredonia School of Music faculty and
students; an exhibit featuring select correspondence between Zweig and
Strauss from Fredonia’s prized Stefan Zweig Collection
<http://fredonia.libguides.com/archives/zweig>; and the 4th Biennial Stefan
Zweig Lecture given by award-winning Zweig biographer George Prochnik.



All events are free and open to the public.
