MusicaNova Orchestra teams up with NPR’s Martin Goldsmith for special concert in Arizona

More from this show

On Jan 22, MusicaNova Orchestra is teaming up with NPR’s Martin Goldsmith and Scottsdale Center for the Arts for a special concert, Winter Journey/The Inextinguishable Symphony. Winter Journey is a 2019 film that tells the story of Martin Goldsmith’s parents, who emigrated to America in 1941 after playing in the Jüdische Kulturbund, or Jewish Cultural Association. The Judische Kulturbund was a little known aspect of Nazi Germany, in which a remarkable ensemble of Jewish artists was maintained as an insidious Nazi propaganda tool. MusicaNova is bringing Martin to Arizona for a screening, and then following the film, the Orchestra will perform Carl Nielsen’s Inextinguishable Symphony, the last piece the Judisher Kulturebund Orchestra rehearsed in the 1940s before it was shut down by the Gestapo.
