Notes & Reviews:

"Franz Waxman's 'Song of Terezin,' composed almost 20 years after the end of the Second World War, is a harrowing musical memorial to the Holocaust...Waxman sets this material with great sensitivity, employing a powerful musical language that alludes to a number of central European influences (Schoenberg, Berg, Zemlinsky, even Richard Strauss), but establishes an individual identity and a fine sense of dramatic pacing...another triumph in Decca's Entartete Musik series." ***** BBC
