A Vibrant Legacy: Chamber Music of a Lost Generation

Tuesday, May 7, 2024 29 Nisan 5784

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

In observance of Colorado Holocaust Remembrance Week, please join violinist Yumi Hwang-Williams, violinist/violist Sheila Reinhold, and cellist Seoyoen Min for a concert in Temple Emanuel Denver’s intimate Feiner Chapel, featuring music by composers who were murdered or who suffered persecution, exile, and tragic loss during the Holocaust. We are fortunate to be able to play these wonderful works, and their beauty and creativity still speak to us today.

This year's short and varied program will include the lyrical Serenade for string trio by Sándor Kuti, killed in 1944 at age 36; the witty 1924 Duo for Violin and Cello by Hanns Eisler, who escaped to the United States in 1938 only to be deported in the McCarthy era; the hauntingly beautiful Sonata for Two Violins by Mieczysław Weinberg, who at age 19 was the only one of his family to survive the Nazi invasion of Warsaw; and the powerful Tanec (Dance) for string trio by Hans Krása, written in the Terezin internment camp before he was transported to his death in 1944.   

More information about the musicians.
