Jeanne Golan, Pianist


All Ullmann all the Time

This year finds Jeanne on sabbatical, recording the complete sonatas of Viktor Ullmann, pieces that span his compositional life from his days as a leading musical figure in Prague to his internment at Terezin right up until the month before he was taken to Auschwitz.

The season has included meeting several Terezin survivors, including an afternoon spent with Alice Herz-Sommer. It culminates with her performing on the annual "Breaking the Silence" program at the Ravinia Festival, hosted by James Conlon. See The Season page for more info.

The artist wishes to thank the Orel Foundation for its support of this project. Further Ullmann events are in the works. If you'd like to be part of the effort to get these astounding pieces out in public, please contact the artist at
