Alberto Hemsi : the Bela Bartok of Judeo-Spanish music

MUSIQUES JUIVES D’HIER ET D’AUJOURD’HUI - TUESDAY APRIL 10TH 2018, JUDAÏQUES FM (94.8), 21H05
Ketty Menasce-Hemsi evokes the memory and the Judeo-Spanish work of her father, the composer Alberto Hemsi (1898-1975).

Music and the destruction of European Jews

Since Hitler came to power in 1933, a central office for music was created, directed by Richard Strauss, to survey and control the music in Germany. Very quickly, it is forbidden to play works by Jewish composers, and these works are considered “degenerated”. Many Jewish musicians will be sent to working camps first, and then to concentration and extermination camps during the war.
