Pro Musica Hebraica opens their third season at the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater Thursday evening, November 18th with a program called War and Exile: The Music of Berman, Braunfels, and Ben-Haim. All three composers were on meteroic careers in the 1920's and 30's, when the Nazi regime changed their lives and their music forever. Pro Musica Hebraica research director James Loeffler is Assistant Professor of History and Jewish Studies at the University of Virginia. He joined Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton to discuss these three composers, whose works exemplify both profound musicianship and personal identity.
