March 15 7:00 pm

Dedicated to emigre, composer, and long-time Los Angeles resident Walter Arlen, this program features premieres of works by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Walter Arlen, who both fled fascism and artistic repression in Europe and made their home in Los Angeles. The concert will include US premiere performances of quartets by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, including one written based on the name of Walter Arlen.

In a pre-concert talk beginning at 5:30 pm and moderated by Recovered Voices Program Manager Adam Millstein, special guests Maestro James Conlon, Harvey Sachs, and Diana Castelnuovo-Tedesco discuss the life-defining challenges exiled artists faced in the 1930s and 40s and what must be done today to keep their work alive.

The Ziering-Conlon Initiative for Recovered Voices is made possible through the support of the Ziering Family, and special performance support is provided by the Amron-Sutherland Fund for Young Pianists.

This concert is generously supported by Evelyn and Stephen Block, Raulee Marcus, and Abby Sher.
