The CD consists of music by three Hungarian and one Hungarian-American composers who were exiled or killed in the Holocaust : multiple Oscar recipient Miklós Rózsa (1907-1995), Sándor Vándor (1901-1945), Lajos Delej (1923-1945), György Justus (1898-1945).
Featuring duos for cello and piano by Rozsa and Vandor - plus a Scherzo from a missing cello sonata attributed to Delej - songs by Vandor and Justus for soprano and piano, and the premiere recording of a recently rediscovered set of piano miniatures by Delej.
The CD is the result of the group’s successful four-city concert tour in Hungary in 2014, which was sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Budapest.
