Holocaust Remembrance Suite
Der Todesreigen - Holocaust Remembrance Suite
This Suite for solo piano is an unique remembrance project, which has grown out of a collaboration with pianist Hal Freedman from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Hal Freedman has been a solo recitalist at colleges, universities and various venues including the Academy of Music in Philadelphia. He is also a well-known piano teacher and respected recording artist. halfreedmanpianist.com/
The innocence and beauty of pure piano classical music poses a stark contrast to the horrors of the Third Reich and the Holocaust.
Each piece in the Holocaust Remembrance Suite contains a vital message about the war crimes and atrocities of the past. Unfortunately, the message is applicable to conditons that persist in our world today. It is our sincere hope to raise social awareness of these problems through this important project.
