Music And Liberation

Mona Golabek has played with orchestras across the globe as a pianist. She inherited her musical ability from her mother, Lisa, who nearly died before she could pass it on. This hour, we’ll talk to Golabek about how her mother narrowly escaped the Nazis in war-torn Vienna, which she writes about in The Children of Willesden Lane: Beyond the Kindertransport: A Memoir of Music, Love, and Survival. Golabek performs at the Wyly Theatre on Wednesday.
