Songs of Marcel Tyberg, a performance and recording project. Florestan is working with the Marcel Tyberg Legacy Committee to present the complete songs of Marcel Tyberg. Marcel Tyberg (1893–1944) was an accomplished composer, conductor and pianist. Notable conductors such as Rafael Kubelik and Rodolfo Lipizer premiered his pieces in Prague and Italy. His eclectic compositional style embraced popular dance music as well as enormous symphonies on the scale of Mahler. Unfortunately, due to the conditions of World War II, Tyberg, only 1/16th Jewish, was deported to Auschwitz and died there. In anticipation of his deportation, Marcel entrusted all compositions and personal writings to his friend Dr. Milan Mihich. After the end of WWII, Mihich’s son, Dr. Enrico Mihich, emigrated to Buffalo, taking Tyberg’s music with him. Enrico (“Henry”) became a successful research physician at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, and he partnered with the Buffalo Philharmonic’s Artistic Director JoAnn Falletta and musicians in the Buffalo community in preparing many of Tyberg’s works for performance.
