Joy Calico, "Arnold Schoenberg's 'A Survivor from Warsaw' in Postwar Europe"

Composer Arnold Schoenberg wrote this brief but searing commemorative cantata in Los Angeles in 1947.  Its performance and reception history in postwar Europe reveals that it was a lightning rod for contemporary politics, its meaning reinvented in each new venue to suit local contexts.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required. Limited seating.
