The Clarion Quartetwill perform works composed before, during, and after the holocaust by composers that were silenced by the Nazis. Members will discuss the works, their performance at the Teresienstadt Concentration Camp, and the upcoming PSO concert featuring Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5.
The Clarion Quartet will give a concert of music by composers banned by the Third Reich on May 22 at the Terezin Memorial, on the very stage where one of the pieces was first performed. The program is Five Pieces by Erwin Schulhoff, Quartet No. 3 by Viktor Ullman and Quartet No. 3 by Erich Korngold.
