As a postwar German native who now lives in New York and is married to a Jewish man, Lemper is especially sensitive to the history of the Holocaust.
She considers it her responsibility and has an ethical longing to honor the Jewish people and to stimulate dialogue about the past. She first set out on her mission in 1987 when she became the protagonist of the major recording series on DECCA ‘Entartete Musik’ (degenerate music) that presented Jewish composers whose music had been banned by the Nazis. With Songs for Eternity, this mission carries on and continues to touch lives.
Date and time: 7:30 p.m. February 8
Location: Sixth & I, 600 I Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001
