Also known as “The Ballad of Mauthausen,” & the “Mauthausen Cantata,” is a cycle of four arias with lyrics based on poems written by Greek poet Iakovos Kambanellis, a Mauthausen concentration camp survivor, with music written by Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis. It has been described as the “most beautiful musical work ever written about the Holocaust.” The ballad reflects Kambanellis’s own experience at Mauthausen. In June 2018, Alison Bolshoi was invited to perform the cycle in Greece with composer Lowell Lieberman & pianist William Hobbs.
