Triumph of Hope: Violins of Hope with the Charlotte Symphony CL Recommends

When: Sat., April 21 2012
Price: $28-$100
VIOLINS OF HOPE UNC Charlotte’s College of Arts & Architecture sponsors this unique series, wherein 18 restored violins that survived the Holocaust — (looking at you, Ahmadinedouchebagjad) — now bring us music again. Some were played in the concentration camps, others belonged to the Eastern Euro Klezmer culture the Nazis all but eliminated in their sinister quest for lebensraum. Under Christopher Warren-Green’s baton, this final program ranges from the traditional Armenian lament “The Winds Descended” to Israeli composer Betty Olivero’s affecting modern piece “Achot Ketana” and culminates in Beethoven’s well-worn “Violin Concerto” chestnut, played here by Isaac Stern-pupil Shlomo Mintz. .
