Eliza Lansdale and David Budd, members of Riverside Choral Society, invite you to a performance of Annelies, the first major choral setting of The Diary of Anne Frank.  Composer James Whitbourn takes the teenager’s remarkable and penetrating observations, written while hiding in an Amsterdam attic, as the basis of its extraordinary and moving libretto.  The music and text reflect sounds of the Westerkerk bells and tunes heard on the radio in the Annexe, along with representations of Anne Frank’s Jewish and German heritage, details that to a “woundingly” beautiful (Daily Telegraph) score “whose respectful understatement is its greatest strength” (The Times).
