    Week of the Romantic Era
    “Longing for Home”

    2023 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Russian composer, Sergei Rachmaninoff. He, like many other artists, had to leave his country and take exile in another. Displaced artists and longing for their home are the focus of the week, with the music of Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Dvorák, Heifetz, Kreisler, and Syrian composer Kinan Azmeh. Seven concerts and three readings and talks bring to life this subject, with the voices of these artists as well as the music that they longed for and which shaped them.
