Music from the recording TerezÃn ¦ Theresienstadt featuring works by Pavel Haas, Viktor Ullmann, Erwin Schulhoff and Ilse Weber. Described by The Guardian as 'hugely important' and 'completely unforgettable', and by The Times as 'the sound of the human spirit', Anne Sofie von Otter's journey through the extraordinary creative flowering that occurred in the Theresienstadt concentration camp near Prague is a profound and spellbinding experience. Joyful cabaret songs and instrumental works sit alongside tender lullabies and lieder by composers who were all eventual victims of the Holocaust. The result is a unique portrait of human dignity in the face of tragedy.Performers Anne Sofie von Otter (mezzo-soprano), Bengt Forsberg (piano), Daniel Hope (violin), Bebe Risenfors (accordion).
