It’s important to note that, for the most part, to compose is not to make music. It’s to lay out the DNA for future music, to be realized only when contemporary musicians breath life into it. If a composer truly taps into the Spirit of the age and of all time, the chances are decent that these chains of DNA they so lovingly laid out will continue to manifest as music for centuries. However, for political, social, cultural, and historical reasons, that’s not always the case.

Karol Rathaus was one of the most gifted composers of his generation, but as a Jew in the wrong place at the wrong time, he was forced to flee Europe and the Nazis banned his music when he was at the height of his powers. The OREL Foundation, who’s motto is "Rediscovering Suppressed Musical Treasures of the Twentieth Century” seeks to right this historical wrong, and so they’ve invited us along to Carnegie Hall for a transcendent Night Out!

Internationally acclaimed pianist Daniel Wnukowski has devoted much of his talents to celebrated the voices of Jewish composers that were suppressed during the 20th century, and he’ll be unveiling and unleashing Rathaus with his 3rd Sonata. But, perhaps because of his Polish roots, Wnukowski also has a special relationship with Frederic Chopin — and his program finishes with Chopin’s impossibly perfect, poignant, quirky, kaleidoscopic Twenty-Four Preludes, Op. 28. The program opens with Handel’s Suite No. 7 in G Minor — because why not span three centuries in a single lovely evening at Carnegie Hall?

Tickets are typically $35 — but we’ve got a fat stack for only $15, well more than half off! But this is a night at Carnegie on the cheap, so move if you want one!

And have a great Night Out!
