Composer Marilyn Herman introduces a video-recorded recital of two brand new works relating to her family’s tragic wartime history

On Thursday 23 June at 6pm, second generation composer Marilyn Herman will introduce a video-recorded recital of two new works. One is entitled Rozsa’s Wish, and is based on the last words of Marilyn’s grandmother, Rachel Rozsa, to her children before she was sent to the gas chambers in Auschwitz. The other is entitled The Angel of Chomutov, and pays tribute to the courage and compassion of a young Czech woman who risked and probably gave her life to hand Marilyn’s father a piece of bread, when aged fourteen, he was on a death march from Buchenwald.
