7.30pm | Concert

On the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day our Artist in Residence, Natalie Clein programmes a concert with works by composers, activists and victims of the Holocaust.

Throughout the rise of right-wing radicalism, Erwin Schulhoff integrated a variety of musical influences into more traditional musical forms, from jazz to Dadaist and Expressionist aesthetics. In “Five Pieces for String Quartet” (1923) and “Duo for Violin and Cello”, Schulhoff’s invites the listener to a complex play of contrasting musical ideas. Berthold Goldschmidt’s Retrospectrum stands out as a landmark in the composer’s biography. Inspired by Schoenberg’s string trio (1946) and designated to “Entartete Musik” in Nazi Germany, Goldschmidt returned to composing only in the 1980s, creating Retrospectrum in 1991. Hans Krása is possibly one of the most important musicians in Nazi occupied Germany. The Czech composer organised orchestral performances in Theresienstadt and the musical life in the concentration camp. Passacaglia and Fugue and “Tanec” (Dance) are two of Krása’s greatest works for string trio.
