Composer + Holocaust Victim, New York Premiere at Meisel Gallery

Apr 17 | Wed |
View Website

Composer Viktor Ullmann is one of the most notable of the artists who continued to compose while entrapped in Nazi concentration camps. Although many manuscripts were undoubtedly destroyed as their creators met an untimely fate, some were smuggled out or hidden. Ullmann wrote and premiered music while imprisoned in the Nazi concentration camp Terezin (Theresienstadt) before he was ultimately murdered in a gas chamber at Auschwitz. Pianofest in the Hamptons will present the New York premiere of one of Viktor Ullmann's works written in the concentration camp, The Tale of the Love and Death of Cornet Christopher Rilke for Narrator and Piano, on Wednesday, April 17, at the Louis K. Meisel Gallery in SoHo (141 Prince St, New York, NY 10012).
