My Shadow and My Light, a concert of choral and orchestral works, looks to the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, and how composers responded to these profound moments in human history. The concert features the works of three early 20th-century composers—two British and one American—who composed works expressing their deeply personal reactions to the social and political environment of their day.
