RIAM Chorale perform 'Annelies'
RIAM Chorale is proud to present 'Annelies', the first major choral setting of one of the most profound records of World War II, The Diary of Anne Frank.
In the words of composer, James Whitbourn, this poignant work “brings to life the diary written by Annelies Marie Frank between 1942 and 1944 when she and her family hid in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse. From the windows, Anne looked up to the beauty of the sky, and downwards to the brutality meted out by the Nazis. The contrasting sights inspired some of the most profound and memorable thoughts in an extraordinary diary, read by millions of people throughout the world.”
Conducted by Blánaid Murphy.
Presented in partnership with the Holocaust Education Trust Ireland.
