The Lost Chord: January 23 - Ullmann Victorious

Ullmann.jpg

Viktor Ullmann was one of the best-known composers to be interned in Theresienstadt, or Terezin, the “model camp” set up by the Nazis to deceive the foreign press and the International Red Cross.  There, artists continued to express themselves until deportation.  Ullmann wrote, “Our will to create culture was as strong as our will to live.”  He was killed in the gas chambers at Auschwitz in 1944.  It is the music he composed at Terezin, largely, that survives and stands as a metaphor for the indomitable spirit of the artist.  Ullmann endures, this Sunday at 10 pm.

Ross Amico is program host, and host of Picture Perfect which airs Saturdays at 6 pm and The Lost Chord which airs Sundays at 10 pm.
