An evening of discovery includes the film "Winter Journey", which depicts one man’s powerful story of love, music and resiliency in an all-Jewish orchestra amid the persecution of 1930s Germany.
MusicaNova performs the last piece the Jewish orchestra rehearsed, Carl Nielsen’s Inextinguishable Symphony, and is joined by local choirs for Jean Sibelius’ magnificent Finlandia.
Martin Goldsmith is the author of the book titled, "The Inextinguishable Symphony: A True Story of Music and Love in Nazi Germany", which outlines the story of how his parents met. The book has since been made into a film by Danish filmmaker Anders Ostergaard titled, “Winter Journey,” which stars Goldsmith. Goldsmith is director of classical music programming at SiriusXM Satellite Radio in Washington, D.C. and formerly the host of Performance Today, National Public Radio’s daily classical music program.
