Olam Tikvah Congregation

Dates: Thursday, April 03, 2014
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: James Loeffler

A talk -- with musical examples -- about how Soviet Jewish composers dealt with the Holocaust. Why was the first piece of classical music ever written about the Holocaust composed in Soviet Tashkent of all places? And was that piece, by a Soviet Jewish composer named Mikhail Gnesin, and titled, "In Memory of Our Perished Children," intended to depict only Hitler's Jewish victims, or all Soviet children?
