Kurt Masur, Honorary Guest conductor, takes the helm of the IPO for Schoenberg’s harrowing cry against Nazi Germany coupled with one of Bruckner’s most popular Symphonies.

“What the text of “A Survivor from Warsaw” means to me ? It is a warning to all Jews never to forget what has been done to us…… The miracle is, to me, that all these people, who might have forgotten for years that they are Jews, suddenly, facing death, remember who they are”. Arnold Schoenberg
