Listen here to GORECKI Symphony No3



A young and free Ann Frank http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miLV0o4AhE4





The Soprano is Isabel Bayrakdaraian, Sinfonietta Cracovia, conducted by John Axelrod.

A beautiful moving tribute - performed here - this wonderful Sopranos voice is very moving indeed - and for it to be performed in this space - well, quite incredible !

This piece is taken from a 2005 Music Memorial Film from Auschwitz" the film is called Holocaust. For the first time since its liberation, permission was granted for music to be heard in the usually SILENT Auschwitz. A number of leading musicians were brought there to perform music for the film. 
Upsetting and unforseen scenes greeted British troops as they entered Bergen-Belsen concentration camp on 15 April 1945. They were accompanied by the BBC's Richard Dimbleby who recorded his first impressions for radio.
