Recovering a Musical Heritage: The Music Suppressed by the Third Reich
Among the countless crimes perpetrated by the Nazi regime against the Jews was an attempt to permanently silence the Jewish artistic voice. As a result, two generations of Jewish composers—shining examples of the great German classical music tradition—were completely suppressed, their works un-played, and their lives ruined or ended.
Please join us for a presentation by Maestro James Conlon as he speaks about his nearly two-decade mission to bring the Jewish voices of the classical tradition to the attention of musicians and music lovers throughout the world and challenges that still lie ahead.
Maestro James Conlon will appear in conjunction with his April 10-12 performances at the Kennedy Center.
