An afternoon of music, historical photographs and readings from Dr. Thomas Wolf’s new book The Nightingale’s Sonata. This richly woven tapestry centers around his grandmother, the legendary violinist Lea Luboshutz, and her remarkable musical family. Spanning generations, from the shores of the Black Sea to the glittering concert halls of New York, it is also the story of César Franck’s magnificent violin sonata, which will be performed during the event.
