Description: This is not what you think it is. Yes, there are lots of Jewish composers from Poland, Germany and the Czech lands represented here but this Italian-produced series goes farther in including music composed by Allied prisoners-of-war (in Germany, Japan and Italy) as well as victims of Soviet prison camps and internees in Vichy France. You'll even find a whole disc devoted to Jean Martinon toward the end of this 24-disc series. Vol. 1 comes with an introductory book with 14 pages of English text; each of the individual remaining volumes has a booklet of from 48 to 88 pages with brief notes on the composer and his/her work in English, French, German, Italian and Hebrew with many photographs of camps and composers. Sung texts are given only in their original language. A lot of completely unknown material here, exhaustively researched and well-presented. Choir of the University of Foggia; Nicola Marasco, Paolo Candido (male voice), Angelo De Leonardis (baritone), Francesco Lotoro (piano), Rosa Sorice (female voice), Laura Aprile, Alina Scoticailo (violins), Luigi Gagliano (viola), Gianni Cucineillo (cello), Domenico Sarcina (oboe).
