On this edition of Exploring Music the theme is Artists in Exile, a nod to Joseph Horowit's book of the same name, which refers to "how refugees from 20th century war and revolution transformed the American arts." On this and the next program, you will hear stories of the appreciation of new places but also the terrible loneliness that comes from being in exile, forced from one's home by internal strife and placed thousands of miles away in a new world.
