GIVING VOICE TO A FOXTROT FROM AUSCHWITZ-BIRKENAU
Patricia Hall, University of Michigan School of Music
The Collections Department of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum preserves a number of manuscripts of popular songs arranged by members of the Auschwitz I men’s orchestra. These songs, written with great care in black ink on Beethoven Papier brand music paper, often bear highly ironic, but also tragically relevant titles: “Letters That Never Arrived,” “Hours That One Can Never Forget,” “Sing a Song When You’re Sad.” Hall describes the complex process of realizing one of these songs, “Die schönste Zeit des Lebens” (The Most Beautiful Time of Life) from a manuscript deposited in the Collections Department in 1975, to a concert performance and recording in 2018. Originally a 1941 popular song composed by the German film composer Franz Grothe with a text by Willi Dehmel, it has been arranged for four first violins, five second violins, a viola, two clarinets, a trombone and a tuba. During Hall's presentation, she will play a recording of the foxtrot performed by SMTD’s Contemporary Directions Ensemble, conducted by Oriol Sans.

Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances.
