On-Site Live Performance: A Recovered Voice – The Clarinet Music of Hans Gál

October 8, 2023 | 2:30pm CDT

9603 Woods Drive, Skokie, IL 60077

With a career spanning over half a century, enjoy a live concert of the works of revered Austrian Jewish composer Hans Gál. Driven into exile after the “annexation” of Austria in 1938, Gál and his family fled to Britain, where they were interned as “enemy aliens” for several months. He continued composing music through the war despite desperate circumstances and would become a beloved performer and composer in the decades that followed.  

The Museum is proud to present three of Hans Gal’s works for clarinet, written in different stages of his life. Musicians Douglas Broderick, clarinet; Steven Houser, cello; Andrea Swan, piano; and Thomas Yang, violin; will perform:  

  • Serenade for Clarinet, Violin and Cello (1935)  
  • Trio for Violin, Clarinet and Piano (1950)  
  • Sonata for Clarinet and Piano (1964)   

A reception will follow the performance. 

Reservations required. Free to the public.
