Anne Frank’s story in song

From Upbeat, 1:00 pm on 23 May 2017

Annelies is a choral piece that tells Anne Frank’s brave journey of hiding from the Nazis. The work will have its New Zealand premiere this week from the Auckland Youth Choir. British composer James Whitbourn discusses how less is more when you create music to reflect the emotional trajectory of a story as tragic as that of Anne Frank.
