International Centre For Suppressed Music

November 2001 Southbank Centre Jewish Culture Day

In November 2001 the JMI Southbank Centre Jewish Culture Day also called ‘Thwarted Voices: Music Suppressed by the Third Reich’ included five concerts spanning  lieder, chamber and orchestral music plus cabaret, and the first staged production in Britain of Max Brand’s exciting opera Maschinist Hopkins. This opera had engendered 27 different productions in the few years between its composition in 1929 and its banning in 1933. The day was introduced from the stage by writer and comedian Barry Humphries, who has a great passion for this music.
