Ute Lemper & Escher Quartet: From Theresienstadt

Ute Lemper, vocals / Vana Gierig, piano / Romain Lecuyer, bass
Escher Quartet: Adam Barnett-Hart, violin / Kristin Lee, violin /
Pierre Lapointe, viola / Brook Speltz, cello

Star singer Ute Lemper, “one of the great chanteuses” (New Yorker), and the “eloquent” Escher Quartet (BBC Music Magazine) team up for an evening of the remarkable music composed in Theresienstadt, the World-War-II concentration camp. Lemper offers songs that traverse a wide spectrum of human emotion, and the Escher Quartet performs Viktor Ullmann’s masterful String Quartet No. 3, a romantic rumination on life’s fleeting beauty. Don’t miss this unique musical testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
