27 Suppressed Music Concert @ 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Suzanne Snizek, flute
Aaron Schwebel, violin
Keith Hamm, viola
Yoomi Kim, piano

Join School of Music professor Suzanne Snizek for this concert featuring rarely performed examples of "suppressed music" from the WWII era. Predominantly written by composers of Jewish backgrounds, these works were suppressed by the Third Reich for ideological rather than artistic reasons, and systematically prohibited from publication, performance and broadcast. These compositions unfortunately often never found, or in many cases never regained, their place in the standard repertory even long after the WWII era concluded.

Snizek has been actively researching, teaching and performing this vast body of work for the past 10 years and this recording and concert project is the culmination of this extensive study period. Now the recipient of a UVic research and creative project grant, Suzanne is recording six musical works that illustrate the diversity and vitality of the musical styles and ideas that were being explored during that historical era.

The concert will feature Sonata’s for flute and piano by Boris Blacher and Leo Smit as well as trio by Jan van Gilse. Joining Snizek to perform these works are violist Keith Hamm (Canadian Opera Company), violinist Aaron Schwebel (National Ballet of Canada concert master), and pianist Yoomi Kim (Victoria Conservatory of Music faculty).
