We are honored to be hosted by Temple Beth Am to share music by composers whose lives were deeply impacted by the Holocaust. Shostakovich’s Tenth Quartet (1964) bears a dedication to Mieczyslaw Weinberg, the Jewish/Polish composer who fled to the Soviet Union after his family members were murdered in the camps. We’ll play the Lento from Weinberg’s Fourth Quartet (1945), as well as Gideon Klein’s String Trio from 1944 and Alexander von Zemlinsky’s A Major Quartet from 1896. Blayne Barnes, Natasha Bazhanov and Artur Girsky, violinists extraordinaires, join us.
