This focus session on the composers sent to Terezín in the 1940s includes a talk by writer and broadcaster Simon Broughton, a filmed interview with holocaust survivor Zdenka Fantlová, and a screening of the award-winning film The Music of Terezín.
Theresienstadt – or Terezín to give it its Czech name – was a Nazi camp where inmates were allowed to stage a whole range of entertainment for visitors. In reality the prisoners were starved, suffered hard labour and disease, and struggled for survival. The Nash Ensemble seeks to offer a reminder of these struggles through the presentation of films and talks, a children’s art exhibition, and the performance of works by composers whose exceptional talent was so cruelly cut short.
This event will take place in the Wigmore Hall Learning Room.
General sale for this event will open at 10:00AM on Tuesday 3 October.
