The reason for this concert was a project of mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter. She collected songs of composers who had suffered or died in the Theresienstadt concentration camp in the Czech Republic. The music left a lasting impression on her: in spite of the suffering of these composers, music was still a source of solace and provided brief moments of happiness. The concert is an ode to the Theresienstadt composers, accompanied by violin, piano, accordion, double bass and guitar. She expresses a rich palette of feelings, created in the most extreme of circumstances.
Tickets from € 10.00 to € 55.00
