Summary

This book tells the true story of Francesco Lotoro, an Italian pianist who started twenty years ago a quest to find the music composed in concentration camps from 1933 to 1945. He formed a local orchestra and they have now played and recorded more than 4.000 scores from music composed in the camps by musicians of all nationalities and faiths. The narration alternates between the account of Francesco’s story - he is an eccentric, genuine and passionate character - and chapters about fifteen musicians of the camps.
