Under Four Flags

In 1918 an American documentary about the War was released just following the Armistice. Featuring footage shot in the desolate fields of Belgium and France by film crews assigned to the American Expeditionary Forces, the movie provides a very unique look into the final days of the War. Musicians of Ma’alwyck has commissioned composer Max Caplan to write a score for this silent film. He will discuss the process of creating the piece and the ensemble will perform excerpts from the score.  Free and open to the public.

To a Soldier: A Great Life Lost

Musicians of Ma’alwyck honors the life of violinist David Hochstein, a great concert artist, who was the nephew of Emma Goldman, and discovered by George Eastman. Hochstein volunteered to serve in the front lines in France and was killed in October 1918. His death reverberated around the musical world and inspired fellow violinist Samuel Gardner (1918 winner of Pulitzer Prize in Music) to compose a profoundly moving piano quintet depicting Hochstein’s life. Musicians of Ma’alwyck presents this quintet, paired with music of Hochstein and Fritz Kreisler. The program opens with the silent film Under Four Flags shown with a newly created score by composer Max Caplan. The performance also features readings from WW1 letters by Pastor William Levering and Norman Thibodeau. Special guest artists include violinist Theodore Arm and pianist Max Caplan.
