This program, featuring exquisite works by concert cellist Lev Aronson, was written and will be performed by Brian Thornton as a powerful and passionate tribute to the brilliant teacher who was his mentor for so many years.

" As a young burgeoning cello soloist in Latvia during the 1930's and 1940's, Lev Aronson, a Jew, was forced to survive in concentration camps during the German occupation of Latvia. After spending time in several concentration camps he escaped, immigrated to America, established himself anew as a concert cellist and eventually became a highly influential cello instructor. "
