They say politics makes strange bedfellows.

Well sometimes music makes strange politics -- or maybe it just takes a few decades to sort itself out. The French patriot Jacques Thibaud, the great anti-fascist Pablo Casals, and the Vichy functionary Alfred Cortot had formed a trio in 1905 and they continued to play together until they fell out over world events thirty years later. We'll hear them in more congenial times this week, performing Beethoven in 1926.
