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. A pre-concert talk at 5:30 pm will focus on the life-defining challenges exiled artists faced in the 1930s and 40s and what must be done today to keep their work alive. This performance will be livestreamed.
