BSO Sessions Episode 15: Recovered Voices
Premieres Wed., February 17 at 8:00 pm
BSO Sessions episodes begin with a performance premiere at 8 pm, followed by on-demand access through June 2021 ($10 pay-per-view and $20 monthly all-access).
Artistic Advisor James Conlon makes his BSO Sessions debut with a program that gives voice to composers suppressed by Nazi censorship. Maestro Conlon discusses his “Recovered Voices” project with the Los Angeles Opera. Works from once well-known composers who were silenced through anti-Semitism and discrimination are lifted up and showcased in this episode. Ravel’s “Kaddisch” closes the program.
