Features
Alma Rose by : Karen Kirtley : Richard Newman


Alma Rosé's tragic story; from her birth and youth in the exalted musical circles of Vienna (her father was leader of the Vienna Philharmonic; her uncle was Gustav Mahler) to her death at Auschwitz; first came to public attention through the 1980 film Playing for Time. As leader of the only women's orchestra in the Nazi camps; by force of her will and spirit; she molded a terrified group of young musicians into an ensemble that became their sole hope of survival. And although Alma herself died of a sudden illness shortly before the liberation of the camps; she saved the lives of some four dozen members of the orchestra. In telling her full story for the first time; Richard Newman and Karen Kirtley honor her and the valiant prisoner-musicians for whom music meant life.
