Programme Note

Setting text by journalist, music commentator and novelist Norman Lebrecht, this work traces the story of Dovidl, a prodigy from Poland stranded in London during the Second World War.

After losing his family in the Holocaust, Dovidl struggles to come to terms with his loss.

In his search for comfort, he meets a Chassidic Rebbe and his group of survivors who honour the dead with an eternal "Song of Names".
