Simon Laks and his songs
Due to his descent, the Polish-Jewish composer Simon Laks (1901–1983) was long denied international recognition. His shared this fate with a number of other notable composers. They have the same origins and belong to the same generation, were born around the turn of the nineteenth to the twentieth century. Although Laks was not without success during his lifetime, a systematic reappraisal of his works has taken place only in recent years, including the publication of unpublished works and the reissue of long out-of-print editions as the basis for their active reception.
