Our new series of Research Forums will be livestreamed from the RNCM YouTube channel. The audience has the opportunity to hear presentations from academics, performers and composers, and to engage in the exchange of ideas that follows. Talks usually last about an hour, including a Q&A session. Join us in person or watch this session livestreamed.

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day later this week, David Fligg, RNCM Honorary Research Fellow, and former lecturer in academic studies, discusses his new book, the first full-length biography on Gideon Klein in almost 30 years. Klein was murdered in an Auschwitz sub-camp, aged just 25, yet became part of Prague’s musical elite prior to, and during, the German occupation, as well as continuing to compose and perform during his imprisonment. Details about David’s book can be found here.

Free admission, no ticket required.
