Program Notes

The Terezin Concentration Camp was the home for over 150,000 Jews during the Holocaust. Scenes from Terezin is based on the poems of Ava Scholsova and Fronta Bas, both of whom died in the Auschwitz concentration camp, and William Francis McBeth's beautiful and intense Kaddish. The four movements of this poignant work are bound together by a recurring motive. For the most part, the music is not happy or uplifting, but meant to portray a dark time in world history, and remind us to pause and be thankful for our freedom.
