London 1938: Suppressed Music

A live performance by Fran & Flora


Part of The Wiener Library’s London 1938 exhibition series.

A live performance of violin and cello incorporating music supressed by the Nazis, including music from Weimar Germany and traditional Roma and Klezmer string music and song from Eastern Europe.

Described as "fiercely passionate" by BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction DJ Max Reinhardt, Fran & Flora captivate their audiences with soulful laments, exquisite songs, irresistible dance tunes, and tales of their musical adventures.

This new collaboration between violinist Flora Curzon and folk/experimental cellist Francesca Ter-Berg combines aspects of traditional string music and song from Eastern Europe with original compositions and improvisation. Having travelled across Europe to study with many great masters of Eastern European Roma and Klezmer music, Fran & Flora perform this repertoire incorporating their own unique arrangements creating a sound that is both timeless and contemporary.
