On this Holocaust Remembrance Day, discover how two musical works divided by tonality and 125 years of fateful history share many of the same aspirations. Musicologists Amy Wlodarski, The Leonard Bernstein Scholar-in-Residence Michael Beckerman, and Abby Anderton discuss these powerful musical settings and how the music in Schoenberg’s A Survivor from Warsaw and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, which Music Director Alan Gilbert conducts May 3–6 and 9, 2017, reflects the invincible nature and freedom of the human spirit.
