Ensemble for These Times: Emigres & Exiles in Hollywood
E4TT's first self-presented concert in their eleventh season is a wonderful program of rarely heard classical compositions by composers who fled a conflict-ridden Europe in the 1930s and 40s--some, such as Franz Waxman (1905-1967), Alexandre Tansman (1897-1986), Erich Korngold (1897-1957), John Williams' teacher Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (1895-1968)and Miklós Rozsa (1907-1995), going on to win multiple Academy Awards and create the characteristic Hollywood sound that shaped what we hear at the movies today, and others, such as twelve-tone composer Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1945) and Ernst Toch (1987-1964), continuing their role as seminal composers and major teachers and deeply influencing the course of classical music in the U.S. The program will also include selections from E4TT's April 6, 2018 release, "The Hungarians: from Rozsa to Justus," which won a Gold Medal in the 2018 Global Music Awards, and will be the focus of E4TT's November tour to UCLA and the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. Performers: Nanette McGuinness, soprano; Anne Lerner-Wright, cello; Xin Zhao, guest pianist . Composer Audio Samples available at http://www.E4TT.org/exiles.html
