THE RETURN OF THE VIOLIN:
SCREENING AND DISCUSSION WITH JOSHUA BELL

Wednesday, December 3, 7:30 PM
Joshua Bell, Sigmund Rolat and Budd Mishkin

92Y- Buttenwieser Hall

Told through the eyes of holocaust survivor Sigmund Rolat, who is responsible for the film, the movie reveals the violin’s relationship to  Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman, a legendary humanitarian who saved Europe’s premiere Jewish musicians by forming the Palestine Orchestra. The film fulfills Rolat’s dream of seeing the instrument return to his hometown where Bell performed with the Czestochowa Orchestra in 2009 in conjunction with efforts to open the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw. Following the film, Joshua Bell and Sigmund Rolat will discuss this remarkable instrument’s journey with Budd Mishkin.

After the program, Joshua Bell will sign copies of his new Bach recording, his holiday CD, 
Musical Gifts
, and the children’s illustrated book The Man with the Violin.

Tickets $34 General Admission

SCHOENBERG BEFORE SCHOENBERG

Monday, December 15, 7:30 PM
SubCulture – 45 Bleecker Street (downstairs)

There is a world of difference between Schoenberg’s String Quartet No. 1 and the “scary” Schoenberg of atonal music. His first quartet is in the Late Romantic style of Brahms, Mahler and Strauss, whose musical world was later turned upside down by the “Schoenberg Revolution” of twelve-tone techniques. The First Quartet is one monumental, yet elegant movement, filled with sweeping gestures and nothing to interrupt his grand journey of music.

Taking us on this journey is a virtuoso quartet specifically formed by the great cellist Fred Sherry, whose recordings of Schoenberg’s music have earned two Grammy nominations. Just as it took a genius to write this music, it takes a “genius” to lead it—violinist and 2008 MacArthur Fellow Leila Josefowicz.

Performers:
Leila Josefowicz, violin
Jesse Mills, violin
Hsin-Yun Huang, viola
Fred Sherry, cello

SCHOENBERG: String Quartet No. 1 in D minor, Op. 7

Tickets $35 General Admission

92Y Concerts at SubCulture is a co-presentation of 92Y and SubCulture.


CAN WE BE SILENT?
ARTISTS ON PREJUDICE, RACISM & PERSECUTION

What is the role of an artist in the sphere of public life and in debates on social issues? Is an artist ever “just” an artist?

Wednesday, December 17, 8:15 PM
92Y- Buttenwieser Hall

Writer David Grossman, violinist Gidon Kremer and pianist Sir András Schiff are all outspoken critics of social injustices in their birth countries. They discuss the responsibility of the politically-informed and engaged artist to speak out against prejudice, persecution and other social injustices, ranging from Russia to the current rise of anti-Semitism in Europe and the many different views on the state of Israel.

Tickets $36 General Admission
