The composers on this disc are part of what is sometimes called “The Lost Generation” – those who because of their Jewish background were prevented from working, deported or imprisoned. While some, such as Korngold, were able to emigrate, Schulhoff, Ullmann and Haas all died in Nazi concentration camps. Much of their music has been re-discovered over the past few years, and this collection includes several world premiere recordings.

Reviews

The Times

Only when fighting, even when losing, does life bring joy: such lines bring a gulp to the throat in this programme of music from Jewish composers banned or gassed by the Nazis. Sheridan… has heart and passion, which warms the more testing selections by Ullmann and Schulhoff. Pavel Haas’s Seven Folk Songs are the best discovery.

” —Geoff Brown
American Record Guide

Sheridan’s light lyric voice is sweet…the accompaniment is excellent, and it is well recorded. The songs are all worth hearing. It is simply musical justice that this music should be heard by a wider audience.

” —R. Moore
The Maccabean

Judith Sheridan has done wonders has done wonders in bringing together and recording 33 songs by composers banned by the Nazis. The seriousness of purpose brought to the performances is undeniable.

” —Neville Cohn

Fascinating collection of songs. Judith Sheridan is very committed to this project, hence her vast and superbly presented notes. Exceptional pianism of Craig Combs…no praise is too high for his contribution.
