KHC-NEH Performance
Unheard Melodies

Renana Gutman, concert pianist and piano faculty at Longy School of Music of Bard College, introduces and performs obscure piano music (including some new discoveries) by great composers whose Jewish identity sealed their fate as musicians and human beings in the period surrounding the two world wars. The imaginative and expressive musical soundscapes of these works, many of which were composed in confinement, follow their composers’ personal and creative transformations while bearing witness to the turbulence and trauma of their time. This event is part of the 2021-22 Harriet & Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center (KHC) and National Endowment for the Humanities Colloquium entitled, “Incarceration, Transformation & Paths to Liberation during the Holocaust and Beyond.”
