Mozart's Attic Sunday May 15th at 6:00 p.m.
Last week we heard from some composers who, through luck or prescience, were able to escape the authoritarian regimes of 20th-century Europe.
This Sunday we’ll hear music from seven who were not so fortunate. Some of the names are familiar — Prokofiev, Khachaturian, Shostakovich — others much less so — Krasa, Klein, Eben, and Laks. Some survived the times, others did not.
Artists vs. tyrants: who won?
We only know who gets the last word.
