The 2009 Greenwich Music Festival will run from June 9th to 14th. This year’s festival features music written by prisoners in the Terezin concentration camp during the Second World War. Composers Viktor Ullmann, Gideon Klein, Pavel Haas and Hans Krasa, whose works will be performed throughout the week, were all active members of the vibrant Terezin musical community. All four were sent to Auschwitz on October 16, 1944; they died in the camp. They left, though, a rich legacy of opera, chamber music, choral music and much more. Join us for an amazing week of performances featuring rising young artists from around the world.
