“Lost Generation”: Music by persecuted composers

When the 26-year-old Pavel Haas wrote his high-spirited string quartet “Von den Affenbergen”, he probably had no idea of the cruel fate that awaited him after the annexation of his Czech homeland by the National Socialist regime: persecution, deportation and death in Auschwitz. In this concert in the Lost Generation series, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker present the composer’s youthful works – alongside works by Ernst Toch and Hanns Eisler, who were able to escape Nazi reprisals by emigrating.
