Homage to Gideon Klein - Things To Do - South Melbourne, Port Phillip, Melbourne
Homage to Gideon Klein
210 Bank Street
South Melbourne
In 2019 the world of music celebrates the centenary of one of the most gifted composers to emerge from Czechoslovakia, Gideon Klein, whose career was tragically cut short by the Nazis. The music he produced in Theresienstadt concentration camp – under unimaginable circumstances – is powerful, original and captivating, and shows how greatly he was influenced by Czech master Janácek, whose suite Mládí is a gem of the wind ensemble repertoire. Dvorák’s influence on Janácek’s music was profound: how fitting then to end this concert with a work of sublime lyricism which breathes the air of the Czech countryside, Dvorák’s Serenade for Winds.
