INTONATIONS: SONGS FROM THE VIOLINS OF HOPE

This unforgettable song cycle was inspired by the collection of lovingly restored instruments that were owned and played by Jews before and during the Holocaust. Through Jake Heggie’s music and Gene Scheer’s lyrics, the songs relate the extraordinary voyages of the violins and their owners.

Also featuring solo violinist Mikhail Shmidt.
