World War II upended the lives of countless artists, including scores of composers who fled Nazi Germany and found sanctuary in America. These composers’ rich and colorful music became the soundscape of stage and screen in the 1940s. Revisit the Golden Age of cinema with music from Waxman’s iconic soundtrack for Sunset Boulevard. Catch that same Hollywood glam in Korngold’s exquisite Violin Concerto, with its soaring, lush melodies and high drama. Hindemith’s colorful orchestral showpiece, bold and beautiful, rounds out the program.
