Monday night, May 6th at 9:00 PM, Front Row Washington offers "Between Two Worlds: Jewish Voices in Modern European Music." Presented by Pro Musica Hebraica, this Kennedy Center Terrace Theater concert features the Ariel Quartet and pianist Orion Weiss in works by four composers from the last generation of pre-war European Jews: Erwin Schulhoff, Arnold Schoenberg, Erich Korngold, and Ernest Bloch.
