Entartete Musik

This recital will feature chamber works by Bohuslav Martinu, Pavel Haas, Franz Schreker, Hans Krasa and Alexander Zemlinsky, all of whom are composers whose works were labeled entartete musik (degenerate music) by the Nazis. Between the years 1933 and 1945, Nazi Germany, with its racist ideology and systematic suppression of creative art, silenced two generations of composers and with them, an entire musical heritage.  Duquesne music professor and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) clarinetist Ron Samuels, along with PSO and faculty colleagues, will perform in a concert celebrating the inextinguishable, musical spirit of five victims from that epoch.

3 p.m., Mary Pappert School of Music, Duquesne University, 600 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh. Suggested donation: $10.
