Compositions by composers who perished in the Holocaust. Free and open to the public

 March 29, 2018  8 pm  Ingram Hall, Blair School of Music  

The Blair School honors the presence in Nashville of the Violins of Hope with a program of chamber music. Faculty and students will join forces to present music by composers who perished in the Holocaust, including Gideon Klein’s Lullaby, Pavel Haas’s Sonata for Oboe and Piano, and Erwin Schulhoff’s String Sextet. The program will also include the Quartet for Four Violins, by Graz˙yna Bacewicz, a Polish violinist and composer who performed clandestine concerts during the Nazi occupation, and the haunting song cycle by American composer Ellwood Derr, I Never Saw Another Butterfly, based on poetry written by children imprisoned at the Terezín (Theresienstadt) concentration camp
