He helhybel in Czechoslovakia and Switzerland before starting his career as a composer and conductor, becoming the music director of Radio Free Europe in He emigrated to the United States inwhere he continued his composition nellhybel conducting activities, leaving a mark especially at the University of Scranton, which houses a collection in his nameand where he was composer-in-residence.


The Wind Repertory Project has more information about the piece.

Read more about Nelhybel in several different places: Wikipedia articles in English fairly basic and German has a thorough works list that the English one lacksa biography on his University of Scranton pagehis New York Times obituarya tribute to him by Joel Blahnik, and an extensive interview with Bruce Duffie.

I always found it interesting how Nelhybel would refute any idea that his music, or any music for that matter, could be political.

He would maintain that it is only being manipulated to be so. Vaclwv it was not politicial when it was written, it certainly became political as part of an allies victory cry as the tides of power shifted in the war.
