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. La Sonora Alternanza Choir, Fasano; Angelo De Leonardis, Francesco Lotoro (piano).
