CLASSICAL | Holocaust Remembrance Concert 

This concert features music by Gideon Klein and Wladyslaw Szpilman, composers who perished and survived (respectively) Holocaust camps. Performing will be Eastman School of Music faculty and students, organized by Associate Professor of Violin, Renee Jolles, whose father, Jerome, was a survivor of the camps in Romania, came to America, and established a musical career for himself.

On the program is Klein's String Trio — a piece filled with harshness, anxiety, and angst — written in 1944, a year before he was transferred from Terezin to Auschwitz. Klein died in 1945 under uncertain circumstances. Also included in the program is the Gershwin-like, jazz-flavored "Life of the Machines" by Szpilman, a polish pianist and composer. He hid the composition from the Nazis as he moved from place to place, but it was eventually lost, leaving him to reconstruct it after the war.

The Holocaust Remembrance Concert will take place Sunday, April 12, in Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 7:30 p.m. $10. esm.rochester.edu.
