James Whitbourn: On telling the story of Anne Frank in music

WHITBOURN, J.: Annelies (chamber version) (A. Zukerman, Westminster Williamson Voices, Lincoln Trio, Chandra, J. Jordan)

The first major choral setting of The Diary of Anne Frank takes the teenager’s remarkable and penetrating observations, written whilst hiding in an Amsterdam attic, as the basis of its extraordinary and moving libretto. Whitbourn’s music for this work has been described as “woundingly beautiful” (The Daily Telegraph). He reflects 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 add to a score “whose respectful understatement is its greatest strength” (The Times).
