The composer Viktor Ullmann was murdered by the Nazis in Auschwitz in 1942. His seven piano sonatas are amongst the most important piano works of the 20th century. “If the sonatas of Viktor Ullmann feel contemporary to me, it is because it has taken more than half a century for European art music to recover from the impoverishment brought by the ‘cleansing’ cultural and ethnic practices of those times.“ (Michael Tsalka)
