Aaron Copland described musical creativity as “a confirmation of life.”  During the seemingly-endless dark days of World War II, leading composers in the U.S. and Europe were producing thrilling, life-affirming musical works.  Acclaimed pianist and lecturer Michael Boriskin leads a wide-ranging tour through some of the most iconic and remarkable music created during that notable year of 1944-45 by a Who’s Who of A-list composers, including Igor Stravinsky, Dmitri Shostakovich, Leonard Bernstein, Samuel Barber, Benjamin Britten, Bela Bartok, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, and others.
