Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the third volume in the chamber music series that takes place at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. The composer of the first piece on this CD, Robert Stern writes in his introduction to his piece Hazkarah: "...I was re-reading Ruth Bondy's admirable Elder of the Jews: Jakob Edelstein of Thereisienstadt. In enumerating the graphic statistics in connection with Ghetto Theresienstadt, Bondy writes: `It is impossible to end with dry figures. Somewhere in all of this there must be a lesson for the coming generations. I have not found it. I know only one thing; humanity has not learned a lesson and perhaps is incapable of doing so. As for the Jews, they have merely lost their innocence - perhaps not even Read more that. Perhaps they simply became more vulnerable. I would like to be able to say that Edelstein and the children died for something, for a Jewish state, for a better future. But in all honesty, I cannot do so. They died because they were not allowed to live.' It seemed to me that this was one of the most painfully revealing assertions I have ever encountered in my Holocaust related readings. As I reflected on these thoughts, I decided that the dedication of the score would quote Bondy's last line: to those who died because they were not allowed to live." 034061043928 Albany Records TROY 439 "ALSTON, Lettie Read less
