A concert on the occasion of an exhibition of the painter Rudolf Levy (Stettin 1875 – Auschwitz 1944) will take place on Sunday 12th February 2023 at 4 pm in the Sala Bianca of Palazzo Pitti, piazza de’ Pitti 1, Florence. Realized on the initiative of the Embassy of the Republic of Germany in Italy (Ambassador Viktor Elbling), the concert is organized by the Music School of Fiesole (Director Alexander Lonquich), in collaboration with the Jewish Community of Florence (President Enrico Fink) and the Gallerie of the Uffizi (Director Eike Schmidt).
The Shaborúz Quartet will perform the Quartet op. 18 no. 2 by Ludwig van Beethoven and “Warum?” by Luca Lombardi.
The composition (written in 2006) is a musical reflection on two aspects of German history: great culture, in this case musical, and the barbarism of Nazism.
