The Nazis nearly succeeded in obliterating what they deemed "degenerate" art and music, but over the past decade many works have been retrieved from the ashes. Hebrew Union College's Concerts on Clifton series commemorates International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a concert of chamber works by victims of the Nazi and Soviet oppression.
Internationally acclaimed pianist James Tocco performs Erwin Schulhoff's "5 Études de Jazz," Shostakovich's "Piano Quintet in G Minor" and Viktor Ullman's "Quartet No. 3," accompanied by cellist Daniel Culnan, violinists Rebecca Culnan and Chika Kinderman and violist Yael Senamaud. Ullman died in Nazi concentration camps; Shostakovich was the long-suffering victim of Stalin and his successors. 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27. Free admission with reception following. Scheuer Chapel, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, 3101 Clifton Ave., Clifton.
