Wolf Durmashkin Composition Award and Leonard-Bernstein-Jubilee-Concert

May 9 and 10, 2018

Featuring Janet Horvath, cello soloist, in Max Bruch’s Kol Nidre with a Bavarian Orchestra.

The Jubilee Concerts will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth, and commemorate concerts held at the displaced persons camp in Landsberg, Germany, 70 years ago. 

Seventeen musicians, including cellist, George Horvath, Janet’s father, all Holocaust survivors, formed the St Ottilien Orchestra after the war. The two performances held in Landsberg in May 1948, were conducted by Leonard Bernstein. Janet's performances in Germany, where her father played 70 years ago, where thousands of stateless persons languished after the horrors of the war, will have special significance. The Wolf Durmashkin Composition Award for composers under the age of 35 will be presented during the commemoration. (Entry deadline January 10, 2018.)
