Concert – A Program of Music by Jewish Composers
The program features works by Jewish composers from the 19th and 20th centuries. Selections include the astounding “Fairy Tales” composed in 1910 by the 13-year-old Erich Wolfgang Korngold, possibly the greatest musical prodigy of all time, the enigmatic French virtuoso Charles Valentin Alkan’s “Petites Fantaisies,” and the works of two women composers from different centuries: 19th-century composer Fanny Mendelssohn (older sister of Felix Mendelssohn) and contemporary composer Judith Shatin.
Performed by pianist José López, Coordinator of Keyboard Studies at the Florida International University School of Music.
Free with museum admission
