Melbourne-based classical powerhouse Affinity Collective come together for the second night of Play On Series Two with Gideon Klein's dissonant String Trio. The piece was one of many Klein composed in secret whilst imprisoned in Terezin concentration camp, where compositions and performances by Jews were banned. After Klein's death, his works were smuggled out of Terezin by his girlfriend.

Following Klein, the trio play a serenade by Dohnányi. Dohnányi’s work is peppered with accents of Hungarian folk music and has a sparseness of form that deviates from the traditional serenade.
