EMIGRES & EXILES IN HOLLYWOOD: SERIES FINALE*
Saturday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m.
Live streamed for free (donations welcome) on YouTube from the Berkeley Piano Club, Berkeley

RSVP The finale of E4TT's multi-year exploration of rarely heard chamber works and movie arrangements by film composers who fled Europe in the 1930s and ‘40s, many going on to win multiple Academy Awards, creating the characteristic Hollywood sound that shaped what we hear at the movies today, also with music by Polish composers of that era. Performed by McGuinness, Lerner, and season guest pianist Margaret Halbig.

Featuring music by:
Polish composer Alexandre Tansman (1897-1986); German/Polish-American composer Franz Waxman (1909-1967); Hungarian-American Miklós Rózsa (1907-1995); Austrian-American Eric Zeisl; Austrian-American Hanns Eisler (1898-1962); Auschwitz survivor Szymon Laks (1901-1983); Polish-Russian Mieczysław Weinberg (1919-1996); and Polish composers André Tchaikowsky (1935-1982) and Grażyna Bacewicz (1909-1969).
The concert will be available at no cost via livestream on E4TT's YouTube channel. We ask that you consider making a donation of whatever feels comfortable. In-person admission if safe and permitted. $30/$15/$5: BUY TICKETS AND/OR RSVP
