About

The finale of E4TT's multi-year exploration of rarely heard chamber works and movie arrangements by film composers who fled Europe in the 1930s and ‘40s, many going on to win multiple Academy Awards, creating the characteristic Hollywood sound that shaped what we hear at the movies today, also with music by Polish composers of that era. Performed by McGuinness, Lerner, and season guest pianist Margaret Halbig.

SF/Arts Curator Insight

Cellist Anne Lerner, soprano Nanette McGuiness and guest pianist Margaret Halbig close out the Ensemble’s Émigrés & Exiles in Hollywood series with a live-streaming performance of chamber works by émigré composers famed for their film scores. They’ll play songs from Hanns Eisler’s Hollywood Liederbuch, set to texts by Brecht; Oscar winner Miklós Rózsa’s Kaleidoscope for solo piano; and Introduction & Scherzo by another two-time Oscar winner, Franz Waxman, in a new arrangement for cello and piano.
