Never-Before-Heard Music from Auschwitz Prisoners to Premiere Next WeekNovember 24, 2023
Next week, “Orchestras of Auschwitz” will feature music composed by Auschwitz prisoners during the Holocaust. Conductor-composer Leo Geyer discovered more than 200 pieces in 2015. Geyer visited the Polish death camp after the death of British historian and Holocaust expert Martin Gilbert. Geyer, who is not Jewish, will debut the music at Constella Music’s 10th-anniversary concert. The music is meant to raise awareness and funding for the full series of compositions. This is crucial as the world experiences a spike in antisemitism.
