Censored Identity

Blacklisted by Stalin for her sonic experimentation, Gubaidulina was an explorer of the mystical in music, lifting veils to reveal uncharted soundscapes. Then the yearning and virtuosity of Mendelssohn, banned as Jewish by the Third Reich, but to the world, universal. And finishing with the extravagant Korngold, fled to America to escape Nazi Germany, his music sumptuous, ravishing, and filled with the passion that made him a Hollywood icon.
