This about Anne Frank is based on her words, translated by librettist Melanie Challenger. It was originally written as a concert-length work and three movements were first presented as part of England’s Holocaust Memorial on the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The entire work premiered in London in 2005. It was written as a chamber version that premiered in The Hague in 2009 on what would have been Anne’s eightieth birthday, and was performed by the Riverdale Choral Society at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, New York City, in 2018.
