Orchestra of Exiles
Premiered April 2013
In the 1930s Hitler began firing Jewish musicians. Overcoming extraordinary obstacles, the world famous violinist Bronislaw Huberman moved Europe's great musicians to Palestine and formed a symphony that would become the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. With allies including Arturo Toscanini and Albert Einstein, Huberman saved close to 1,000 Jews, along with Europe's musical heritage.
