"It's hard to imagine a Nazi concentration camp as a center of artistic creativity, but one of them, Terezin, or Theresienstadt in German, proved to be just that, spawning music that is haunting to this day. For the past several years, Shelburne pianist Paul Orgel has been researching and performing works by four composers who were prisoners at the Czech camp." Read the rest here.

More about the CD and pianist Orgel can be found here. A brief interview with Orgel about the recording can be found here.
