      Ben-Haim: Piano Quartet in C minor, Op 4 (29:19)

      ARC Ensemble

      This is Volume 1 in a new chamber series which explores the music of composers who were forced to flee Europe during the 1930s. The survey begins with works by the German-born Jewish composer Paul Ben-Haim, who immigrated to Palestine in October 1933. Ben-Haim was an accomplished pianist, conductor, choral coach and composer who made a significant cultural contribution to his adoptive country. The list of musicians who commissioned, performed and recorded his music includes Yehudi Menuhin, Itzhak Perlman, Menahem Pressler and Leonard Bernstein.
