Censored Identity

Blacklisted by Stalin, Sofia Gubaidulina uses the beautiful sounds of the flute, viola and harp to express sadness and joy. Sadly, Felix Mendelssohn was banned in Nazi Germany, and his timeless music is loved by all who hear it. Korngold fled Nazi Germany to find himself embraced by Hollywood where he composed numerous works for films. His Piano Quintet is wonderfully lyrical and beautiful.

Be sure to come early for our popular pre-concert talk let by Rohan Gregory – it is not a “talk”, but an experience!
