Emigres & Exiles in Hollywood: Encore!
Ensemble for These Times (E4TT) - The Clubhouse, Berkeley Piano Club
Program Info: Back by popular demand! We revisit some of audience favorites from our multi-year exploration of rarely heard chamber works and movie arrangements by film composers who fled Europe in the 1930s and ‘40s, many going on to win multiple Academy Awards, creating the characteristic Hollywood sound that shaped what we hear at the movies today, also with music by Polish composers of that era, preparation for returning to the Krakow Culture Festival later this month.
