Les voix de l’oubli : Erwin Schulhoff - Léo Smit

Performed by the flutist Virginie Reibel-Escoffier, this disc deals with the time of the musical purge of Nazi Germany (1933-1945), with those musicians-composers, for most of them Jewish, rejected before deportation and extermination.

This CD thus brings out from oblivion several works by Erwin Schulhoff and Léo Smit.

Pupil of Max Reger, Claude Debussy, Erwin Schulhof (1894 - 1942), born in Prague, will be arrested the 22nd of June 1941 and interned in the Wülzburg fortress, in Baviara, where he will die from tuberculosis on August 28th 1942.

Influenced by French music (Milhaud, Roussel, Stravinsky...), Léo Smit (1900- 1943), born in Amsterdam in a Jewish family of Portuguese origin, will be confined in the "Jews Theatre" of Amsterdam, before being deportated in Sobibor’s concentration camp where he will be killed by gas on April 30th 1943.

Contents of the disc:
- Erwin Schulhoff : Concertino for flute, viola and doublebass ;
Sonata for flute and piano ; Susi fox song for flute & piano
- Léo Smit : Trio for flute, viola and harp ; Quintet for flute, harp and string trio ; Sonata for flute and piano.
