Music in the Time of Anne Frank

Organised by The Scottish Council of Jewish Communities (SCoJeC)

Location: Zoom (online)

Date: Sunday 8th November 2020

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War as well as the liberation of Auschwitz. The anniversary year is truly timely for this concert, bringing to life the long-lost compositions of victims and survivors of the Nazis. Featuring piano works by Daniel Belinfante and Fania Chapiro, two Dutch-Jewish composers whose lives were forever changed by the Nazi invasion, the concert will include a lively discussion of the composers and their music.

Entitled “Music in the Time of Anne Frank,” the concert will bring to the light works by Dutch composers who were suppressed by the Germans during World War II in the Netherlands. Many of these composers lost their lives in camps and their works are even now still not published.

This concert is put on to connect art between history and present. Proceeds will go to the much needed funds for Aberdeen’s Synagogues new roof.
