Monday night, March 14, 2016 at 9 pm, Front Row Washington presents the Toronto-based ARC Ensemble in a program called, "Before the Night:  Jewish Classical  Masterpieces of Pre-1933 Europe."  Presented by Pro Musica Hebraica, the concert features works by three Jewish composers:  Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, and Jerzy Fitelberg,  all of whom fled Nazi persecution in Europe and relocated to America.  
Classical WETA's Deborah Lamberton spoke with the Toronto-based ARC Ensemble's Artistic Director Simon Wynberg, who explained that the Holocaust is not the real reason these works remain relatively unknown.
