Product Notes

Norbert Stern, a Jew in Nazi-held Belgium, was a young pianist acclaimed in the press as "brilliant and full of promise." In 1942, as conditions worsened for the Jews, Norbert was compelled to leave the Brussels Conservatory of Music where he had been a premier student winning a series of prestigious competitions. Soon thereafter he and his family were forced to go into hiding and hoped to wait out the war. But this was not to be. Two years later the Sterns were denounced and their hiding place discovered. The family was deported to Auschwitz concentration camp and it was there, not long after, that Norbert met his death at 21 years old. Dedication is a tribute by Roger Peltzman, nephew of Norbert Stern, to a brilliant performer the world would never know. The CD is an all-Chopin program, chosen to commemorate Norbert's particular love, and was recorded in the Brussels Conservatory of Music on the same stage where Norbert himself had played. The Conservatory is a beautiful and acoustically rich concert hall and with it's intimate connection to Norbert Stern was chosen as the most meaningful place to commemorate a young life lost and a talent tragically destroyed. Roger Peltzman is a pianist and teacher in New York City. He has performed six solo concerts at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall during the last 12 years. Roger is also a faculty member at America's oldest music school, The Third Street Music School. 50% of all revenue from the sale of this CD will go to the Holocaust Museum of Belgium - Kazerne Dossin. This remarkable museum is on the site of the barracks where 26,000 Jews, including my Uncle Norbert, were deported to Auschwitz. It's primary focus is the plight of the Belgian Jews during World War ll, but it also addresses the discrimination and hate that still exist throughout the world.
