The Manhattan-based Czech Center New York is presenting “Czenglishman in New York,” a photographic exhibition marking 80 years since composer Bohuslav Martinů’s arrival in New York. The composer was forced to flee Nazi occupation in France and arrived in New York’s Ellis Island on March 31, 1941 as a refugee. During the more than a decade he spent in New York City, he wrote the second and third violin concertos, multiple chamber works, and his six symphonies, which were performed by many U.S. orchestras. The in-person and virtual exhibition will include rarely displayed historical photographs of the composer’s life in the U.S. The June 15-September 2 exhibition opened to the public earlier in June with a talk by musicologist Michael Beckerman and performances of Martinů’s music by Clara Kim and Liuh-Wen Ting.
