Shattered Glass (SG) is a conductor-less string ensemble dedicated to re-imagining the concert experience by breaking barriers typical of classical music environments. In this program, "Metamorphosis," they will explore perspectives on World War II through the eyes of three very different composers: Pavel Haas, who wrote his "Study for Strings" (1944) while imprisoned in Theresienstadt; Richard Strauss, whose "Metamorphosen" (1945) reflects his disillusionment with the Nazi party after his initial strong support; and Bela Bartok, whose "Divertimento for String Orchestra" (1939) represents his final work composed in his native Hungary, before he left to avoid the incoming Nazi regime. This program is about knowing oneself, knowing one's country, and facing the realities of WWII from different perspectives in Europe.
