Pianist David Kaplan celebrates the 100th birthday of pianist/composer Gideon Klein, who died in Auschwitz. Kaplan plays works Klein championed by Mozart, Schoenberg and Janácek. Lyris Quartet and Jacaranda Winds perform music well hidden in a suitcase until discovered in 1990.
Pianist/composer Gideon Klein entrusted his sister with a suitcase of his scores before the Nazis captured him. She hid the suitcase so well that the scores weren’t discovered until 1990. Pianist David Kaplan will perform works that Klein championed in the concert hall, as well as his piano sonata composed in Terezin, on his actual 100th birthday. Lyris Quartet and Jacaranda Winds join to perform a program of Klein’s most important works, including the haunting final Partita.
