UVic School of Music flutist, Suzanne Snizek, is a specialist on suppressed music during WWII. Joined by pianist Yoomi Kim, this unique program relates to the Holocaust era and its cultural impact with works by Dick Kattenburg, Mieczyslaw Weinberg, and Boris Blacher. Kattenburg, a Dutch composer of Jewish descent, was murdered in a concentration camp, while Weinberg survived the invasion and occupation of Warsaw by fleeing eastward to the Soviet Union. Blacher lost his faculty position at Dresden after not toeing the political line (his work was considered to be “degenerate” and his social milieu and political attitudes suspect). Snizek’s research, recording and performing projects are part of the larger global effort amongst suppressed music scholars to reinstate this deserving yet under performed music into the standard classical repertoire.
