About The Orchestra Now presents Exodus: Jewish Composers in Exile
Leon Botstein and The Orchestra Now perform rarely heard works by Jewish composers written while they were in exile from their homelands during World War II. The program comprises Alexandre Tansman’s rhythmic 'Polish Rhapsody,' inspired by the invasion of his homeland; Josef Tal’s dramatic 'Exodus,' based on the Passover Haggadah; Walter Kaufmann’s 'Indian Symphony,' written while in exile in Bombay; and Marcel Rubin’s melancholy Symphony No. 4, 'Dies irae,' reflecting his experiences during the Second World War.
