New Voices from the 1930s
MAY 7 & 8, 2022
Saturday at 8 PM
Sunday at 2 PM
Part of TŌN’s Fisher Center concert series
Leon Botstein unearths more rarely-heard masterpieces in this concert spotlighting works from the late 1930s, including William Grant Still’s evocative portrait of enslaved people taking refuge while seeking freedom, and Karl Amadeus Hartmann’s commentary on conditions under the Nazi regime. These works are performed alongside Carlos Chávez’s virtuosic Piano Concerto and Witold Lutosławski’s adventurous Symphonic Variations.
