Temple Emeth in Teaneck presents “Voices Lost: Music of Dutch Composers Suppressed in the Holocaust,” on Sunday, April 23, at 2 p.m.
The lecture-recital focuses on music written by Dutch composers in the years just before the Nazis occupied Amsterdam. The composers who were not sent to camps went into hiding. Defying the Nazi ban, they continued to write music and sponsored concert evenings to support music making. Some of the music included in this program is among some of their composers’ last works. Most people do not know much about either these composers or their music.
Flutist Carol Rina Shansky will give background on each of the composers in addition to per-forming selections of their music. She will be joined by pianist Amber Liao. The duo has per-formed this program at the Holocaust Center at Kean University as well as at several academic conferences.
