Notes & Reviews:

American composer and pianist Paul Schoenfield is at the keyboard for two searing, heart-piercing works commissioned by Music of Remembrance. Schoenfield gives voice to the words of two brilliant poets-one a Holocaust survivor, one murdered-and the range of their emotions through rage, bitter humor, tenderness and fragile hope. This first English-language recording of his 'Camp Songs' (a 2003 Pulitzer Prize finalist) joins his newest song cycle 'Ghetto Songs'-transporting listeners from the horrors of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin to life in the KrakOw Ghetto. Gerard Schwarz's 'Rudolf and Jeanette' is a haunting, romantic chamber orchestra work evoking the life and love of the composer's Viennese grandparents, who were killed by the Nazis. Produced by Music of Remembrance, a Seattle-based non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the precious cultural legacy of works created by musicians during the Holocaust, and to commissioning new works in memory of their spiritual resistance.
