“The Nightingale’s Sonata” saga told through music and based on author Thomas Wolf’s recent book. Wolf will recounts the extraordinary life of his grandmother, the internationally acclaimed violinist, Lea Luboshutz, and her remarkable family of musicians. The program includes a live performance of a musical work Lea Luboshutz championed – César Franck’s dramatic violin sonata – while Wolf’s narration is enlivened by nearly 100 historical photographs, many reclaimed from Russian sources that were inaccessible for three quarters of a century.
