Orchestra teams up to present ‘Winter Journey’ in Scottsdale

Posted

MusicaNova Orchestra is teaming up with NPR’s Martin Goldsmith and Scottsdale Center for the Arts for a special concert.

“Winter Journey and The Inextinguishable Symphony” will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22.

The concert features a screening of the film “Winter Journey.” that tells the story of Goldsmith’s parents, who emigrated to America in 1941 after playing in the Jüdische Kulturbund, (Jewish Cultural Association) in Germany. A news release explains that the Jüdische Kulturbund was a little-known aspect of Nazi Germany in which a remarkable ensemble of Jewish artists was maintained as an insidious Nazi propaganda tool.

Following the film, MusicaNova Orchestra will perform Carl Nielsen’s “Inextinguishable Symphony,” the last piece the Jewish orchestra rehearsed before it was shut down by the Gestapo in 1941. The orchestra will also be joined by local choirs for Jean Sibelius’ “Finlandia,” and will include a Q & A with Goldsmith.

Known for performing lost or little known masterpieces of classical music, MusicaNova Orchestra is celebrating its 20th anniversary this season.

“In many ways ‘Winter Journey and The Inextinguishable Symphony’ exemplifies what I dreamed the orchestra’s purpose would be when we first started in 2002,” MusicaNova Orchestra Founder and Artistic Director Warren Cohen shared in a statement. “So many glorious pieces of music that need to be heard, so many pieces of important history that must be preserved.

Scottsdale Center for the Arts is located at 7380 E. 2nd St.

Tickets are $54, $36, $18, and are available at scottsdaleperformingarts.org.
