The World at War: In Memoriam I at First Unitarian Church of Brooklyn
Friday October 7, 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$35
Works by composers and poets inspired by The Great War.
Alban Berg and Maurice Ravel saw the front lines of the Great War first hand, as did Guillaume Apollinaire, the poet for Francis Poulenc’s Banalités. Charles Ives’ Songs of War reflect on a conflict an ocean away, while Enrique Grandados’ career was cut tragically short by a German U-Boat.

Francis Poulenc Banalités
Maurice Ravel 2 Mélodies hébraïques
