Dr. Howard Pollack presents Marc Blitzstein: His Life, His Work, His World
Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center
Houston, TX
Share this event:


A composer and lyricist of enormous innovation and influence, Marc Blitzstein remains one of the most versatile and fascinating figures in the history of American music, his creative output running the gamut from film scores and Broadway operas to art songs and chamber pieces. Best known for his "Three Penny Opera" and "Mack the Knife", Blitzstein constantly pushed the boundaries of convention in both his work and his life. Award-winning music historian and University of Houston Moores Professor of Music, Howard Pollack's new biography covers Blitzstein's life from his childhood in Philadelphia to his violent death in Martinique at age 58. Beautifully written, drawing on interviews with friends and family of the composer, and new archival sources, Pollack presents the most complete biography of this quintessentially American artist.
