Project Description

The Lysander Piano Trio and clarinetist Charles Neidich come together for a program by European composers–Bartok (Hungary), Castelnuovo-Tedesco (Italy), Hindemith (Germany), and Ben-Haim (Germany)–who were displaced due to the rise of Nazism and Fascism in the 1930s and sought refuge outside of Europe, relocating to the United States and Israel.
