Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gideon Klein was a Czech pianist and composer of classical music. He was born in Prerov and, showing musical talent early, studied piano with Ruzena Kurzová and Vilém Kurz, and composition with Alois Hába.' In December 1941 he was deported by the Nazis to Terezín concentration camp, where along with Leos Janácek's pupil Pavel Haas, Hans Krasa, and Schoenberg's pupil Viktor Ullmann he became one of the major composers in that camp, one of the few in which artistic activity occurred on any scale. His works from these years include music for string quartet, a string trio, and a piano sonata among others. He was deported to Auschwitz and then to Fürstengrube in October 1944, less than two weeks after Read more completing his string trio. He did not survive. Read less
