40th Annual Leo Camp Memorial Lecture
The Nightingale's Sonata
Spanning generations, from the shores of the Black Sea to the glittering concert halls of New York, The Nightingale's Sonata is a richly woven tapestry centered around violin virtuoso Lea Luboshutz. Like many poor Jews, music offered an escape from the prejudices that dominated society in the last years of the Russian Empire. Woven throughout this luminous odyssey is the story is César Franck’s “Sonata for Violin and Piano," a work championed by Lea, one of the first-ever internationally recognized female violinists. This multi-media presentation includes musicians from the Curtis Institute playing César Franck’s “Sonata for Violin and Piano”.
Presented in partnership with the Camp family and Albright College.
