Program notes

"Life is beautiful, love is beautiful, nature and music are beautiful. Everything is a present."
–Alice Sommer Herz

Pianist Alice Sommer Herz was born in 1903 and died in 2014. In her 110 years on Earth, she knew moments of profound joy and of unspeakable horror: she and her son survived two years in a concentration camp, while her husband and her mother were executed by the Nazis. She credits her unbelievable survival to her forgiving and optimistic nature, to her ability to be grateful for every moment of beauty that life has to offer, no matter how small—and, crucially, to her love for music.
