The Angel of Chomutov

10 October 6:00 pm

On Monday 10 October at 6pm (postponed from 23 June), second generation composer Marilyn Hermanwill be in conversation with conductor Karin Hendrickson about her two recent compositions. One of them is Rozsa’s Wish, 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 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. The event will include excerpts from a video-recorded recital of these works.
