Violinist Adam Millstein and pianist Dominic Cheli will perform a one-hour selection of concert music by composers who shaped the sound of film music. All of the composers were from different parts of Europe and were forced into exile following the rise of the Third Reich due to their Jewish Heritage. The musical works and composers will be introduced from the stage with a guided musicological/historical “tour” by Mr. Millstein. All of the composers ended up working in Hollywood with the exception of Mieczysław Weinberg, who wrote prolifically for film in the Soviet Union. This performance will be livestreamed.
