Ryan's interest in history, combined with his passion for new music, led to the launching of a 5 part concert/lecture series entitled “Rediscovered Beauty: Suppressed Composers”. This was dedicated to the generation of musicians, artists, and composers who were suppressed and silenced by the 3rd Reich. The success of this festival led Ryan to create the Rediscovered Beauty Organisation for Suppressed Composers. Other work in this field includes the US premiere of Two Songs for Baritone and Orchestra by suppressed Viennese composer Julius Bürger (whose works he champions) in Marshall, Minnesota as part of the Voices of Exile Festival at Southwest Minnesota State University which took place the final week of October 2016. Ryan was guest performer in May 2017 for the inauguration of the Exil.Arte Centre for Suppressed Composers in Vienna, Austria where he performed Bürger’s Goodbye Vienna.
In partnership with the Nimbus Foundation, International Music Sessions of NYC, and Mr. Ronald Pohl, Esq., Ryan will be creating the first ever recordings of Mr. Bürger’s lieder for commercial release. The album, titled The Lieder of Julius Bürger- A Journey in Exile, is set for release in early 2019.
He resides in Machen, Wales with his wife - Mezzo-Soprano, Siȃn Cameron. For more information, visit: www.RyanHughRoss.com ; www.RediscoveredeBeauty.org
