Szymon Laks – Poem for Violin and Orchestra

Szymon Laks – Poem for Violin and Orchestra February 8, 2017

The composer Szymon Laks‘ music deserves to be better known than it is.

So too does his life. The title of his book, Mélodies d’Auschwitz, probably gives you a clue as to why I say that. He responded to the horror of being in the most notorious concentration camp during the Holocaust by making music.

In the face of atrocities there is a need for all kinds of actions, including those that refuse to let that which is beautiful simply be snuffed out by the oppressors.
