Under the Umbrella of Terezin – Music Against the Odds

Miriam Brickman Piano, Lloica Czackis, mezzo soprano, Rabbi Albert Friedlander and Evelyn Friedlander, Narrators, in conversation with Ronald Senator

That music and poetry of such stature was written and performed in concentration camps like Terezin is beyond comprehension. Rabbi Albert Friedlander, who wrote the Libretto, which uses liturgical texts and children’s poems from Terezin, and Evelyn Friedlander talk with Ronald Senator about Ronald’s Kaddish for Terezin, first performed in Canterbury Cathedral (1986). They play extracts from the CD of this performance. Miriam Brickman performs piano music by incarcerated composers, Krasa, Ullmann and Schulhoff. Lloica Czackis sings cabaret songs from the camp in the most fitting venue in the City which was bombed by the IRA and has opened its gates as a centre for reconciliation and peace.

Presented by the Jewish Music Institute, the Spiro Ark, the St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace and CCJ.
