Music Center at Strathmore

Back to Calendar

"Theresienstadt"
Anne Sofie von Otter, mezzo-soprano
Daniel Hope, violin
Bengt Forsberg, piano

Co-Presented with Vocal Arts Society

In the Second World War, Theresienstadt (Terezin) was a Nazi garrison town near Prague, a holding pen for tens of thousands of Jews — many of them artists and musicians — who would be transported to Auschwitz. This deeply moving concert recreates their music, some of it elegiac, all of it almost unbearably touching; Anne Sofie von Otter “sings them with exquisite tenderness” (Gramophone).

NEWS: Anne Sofie von Otter and Terezín: Theresienstadt was just nominated for a 2008 GRAMMY award!

There will be two 40-minute sets with a 20-minute intermission.

Free Pre-Concert Lecture
