City: NY

Additional Notes:
We will begin this concert series with Nielsens Helios Overture, written in the great tradition of composers chronicling aspects of their travels in musical works, this one a beautiful and brilliant depiction of a day on the Aegean Sea—from sunrise to sunset. Also on this first program will be Mozarts Clarinet Concerto, featuring Stanley Drucker—the former Principal Clarinetist of the New York Philharmonic. Written in the last year of Mozarts life, you will hear an uncharacteristic wistfulness underlying the whole work that seems to make this work more his requiem than the Requiem Mass he was composing at the same time. Finally, we will present Dvoráks Symphony No. 9, From the New World, one of the most beloved and well-known works in the repertoire. Dvorák wanted to create a new style of American composition using local folk music as the model, and while you will hear “covers” of American spiritual songs in this symphony, this is certainly a work by Dvorák, fusing his style with new melodic elements.

Additional Notes:
“The greatest threat to the rule of law is not the people outside it, but those uncertain and distorted situations in which [the law] becomes bad, contradictory, and hypocritical.”
—István Bibó

István Bibó, the great Hungarian political thinker of the 20th century, philosopher, and minister during the 1956 Hungarian revolution, was sentenced to life imprisonment, and later released under an amnesty. In this film, Forgács presents the sensitivity and insight of Bibó's social and historical analysis, and uses unretouched found footage to provide us with a poetic glimpse into the Hungarian landscape of the twentieth century. This film is winner of Best Director for Short and Experimental Film at the Hungarian Film Festival, 2002. With score composed by Tibor Szemzo.

Additional Notes:
A Letter to Mother (1939) is one of the last Yiddish films made in Poland before the Nazi invasion. The plot centers on the story of mother's persistent efforts to support her family, while her husband moves to America. After her family is pulled apart by severe poverty and the turmoil of WWI, she finally makes her way to New York in hopes for better future. A Letter to Mother was hailed by the New York Times as one of the best Yiddish films to reach America. It was the highest grossing Yiddish film of its time.

Discussant: Eric Goldman, Adjunct Professor of Cinema, Yeshiva University

****************

This series commemorates the start of the Great War at a time when violence once again disrupts peaceful life around the world. Jews were among the soldiers and civilians who paid a high human cost for the fighting, including economic hardship, population dislocations, pogroms, unjust accusations, and death. In the aftermath of the war, some Jews were politically radicalized, many assimilated, while others emigrated. The Great War had a long-lasting effect on the following decades, leading to WWII and its own catastrophic events. Four classic international films reflect a range of Jewish experiences in the East and the West.
