A Musical Feast for Passover

March 28, 2013

The springtime Jewish holiday of Passover is about liberation from slavery in ancient Egypt. In this one-hour special, host and violinist Itzhak Perlman shares Passover music from many traditions, plus songs and memories from his childhood in Israel. The program features classical works both familiar and lesser-known, including Handel’s "Israel in Egypt" and John Williams' "Theme from Schindler’s List." Tune-in to CPR Classical tonight at 9 p.m.
