This programme is part of Brundibar Arts Festival’s series dedicated to “Inspirational Women”. These women were composers of Jewish heritage caught up in WW2 in Holland. All three works are completely unknown, they have never been recorded and to our knowledge, they haven’t been performed since they were composed. The music was in manuscript form until it was specially published for this project. These three works have been specially selected to be recorded for a CD (earlier in the year). Our aim is to bring these composers out of the shadows to our audiences in Newcastle and further afield. 

Programme:
 
Henriette Bosmans: violin sonata
Fania Chapiro: cello sonata no.2
Colaoco Osorio-Swaab: piano trio
Prach Boondiskulchok: Brundibár 2023 Special Commission.
