In the torment of World War II, three young musicians perished in death camps having been killed by the barbarism of mankind.
Haas, Krasa, and Schulhoff were modern intellectual Jews, communists, homosexuals, and extraordinary composers. They endured a two-fold, terrible injustice by being cemented into posthumous glory after being assassinated in the middle of their youth. History remembers their status as victims rather than as great musicians.
We chose this concert to pay homage to these “three brothers of the storm.” We invite you to revisit their works, which are full of mystery and the ironic sweetness of the shady Berlin cabarets prior to the war.
