Music of Terezin & Site Cite #austria-czech

Judith Berlowitz <jberlowitz@...>
 

Celia Male's inspiring notice of Jacqueline Cole's upcoming concert led me to
note that May, 2005, will mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Terezin.
While I am not aware of a specific festival honoring the more than 15 interned
composers who managed to produce over seventy significant new works of music
between 1941 and '45, I invite austriaczech genners to become aware of some of
the worldwide efforts to perform this music and to support organizations that
promote it:

Terezin Chamber Music Foundation,
http://www.terezinmusic.org/index.php3?GCS_Session=ce44a4b44dc451f112a4c2653e06c10a

Music Behind Walls,
http://www.interdisciplinary.neu.edu/terezin/music/music.html

Terezin and the Art of Defiance (presented last year by the Catholic University
of America),
http://publicaffairs.cua.edu/news/04DRSymposiumMain.htm

The Viktor Ullmann Foundation (est. by Jacqueline Cole)
http://mitglied.lycos.de/mwiener/ullmann/newsletter.html

There are also recordings available of the better-known Terezin composers
(Ullmann [Teschen], Krasa [Praha], Klein [Prerov], Haas [Brno]...)
