A fitting tribute to those whose lives forever changed by the events leading up to Kristallnacht, November 9, 1938, “The Night of Broken Glass,” and others who were deported by the Nazis, or lost in the Holocaust. This annual program presented by the American Society for Jewish Music, YIVO, the Leo Baeck Institute, and the Center for Jewish History, will feature the Trio Serenade, Song of Authum, and Rapsodia Notturna by Karol Rathaus, a Piano Trio by Hans Gál, and the Suite Polonaise by Simon Laks, three composers who were forced to restart their promising young careers in as immigrants in new countries.
