The Jewish population of Hungary suffered a deep loss during the latter years of the Second World War. Many of its youngest composers met a tragic end, with their promising careers and legacies never fulfilled. This concert gives a few of those artists their due, featuring their work alongside pieces by Hungarian composers who managed to live through the nightmare.

Maestro Leon Botstein shares the stories behind the music in a lively 30-minute Conductor’s Notes Q&A at 7 PM in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. Free for all ticket holders.
