There are four very emotional and vibrant works on this new release from CBC Records, with the featured composition From the Diary of Anne Frank having achieved the status of a Canadian classic, with performances all over the world. Set against the context of the holocaust, this is the candid and touching story of Anne, a vibrant young life caught up in the maelstrom of racism and violence that very nearly destroyed the whole of Europe.
Works for mezzo-soprano and orchestra.
Judith Forst, mezzo-soprano ; CBC Vancouver Orchestra ; Mario Bernardi, conductor.
Sung in English.
