  • “New Paths” Conducted by David Loebel

    From Benjamin Britten’s New York song cycles, to the poems of Luis Cernuda and Marina Tsvetaeva, to the many Austrian and German composers who fled their homelands in the twentieth century, this concert celebrates the resilience of the creative spirit in the face of dislocation and upheaval. We honor the many ways artists have channelled the violence of their immediate circumstances into works of profound beauty and transformation.
