James Whitbourn’s Annelies is the first major choral setting of the diary of Anne Frank, which has inspired millions since it was published in 1947. Premiered in London in 2005 and nominated for a Grammy in 2014, Annelies is praised for its “woundingly beautiful” music and an extraordinary and moving libretto that captures Anne’s keen observations and indomitable spirit. It brings the story to life with echoes of church bells, popular music, and with music from Frank’s Jewish and German heritage. The program includes "Hymn to the Eternal Flame," a Holocaust memorial work written for both Jewish and Christian faith communities by Stephen Paulus, one of America’s most gifted modern composers. With soprano Lynn Eustis; violin, cello, clarinet and piano.
