As the generation with a living memory of the Second World War recedes, Boston Globe music critic and cultural historian Jeremy Eichler RI’17 asks us to open our ears. By exploring how the wartime past has been inscribed in music, Eichler makes the case for hearing history, and for reclaiming the power of sound as a unique carrier of meaning about the past.
