Forbidden Music Regained

24.07.2017

The Leo Smit Foundation has launched a new English language website 'Forbidden Music Regained' which offers access to a searchable database with 35 biographies and nearly 1,900 works and audio samples by composers who lived and worked in the Netherlands and were persecuted in World War II. For Cornelia Hermann the launch of the website 'Forbidden Music Regained' meant she could hear for the very first time a piece of music her Jewish Hungarian-born father had dedicated to her in 1939, when she was seven - 'Pièces pour piano a quatre mains'.
