Suitcase 1938 Max Reinhardt

Suitcase 1938 Max Reinhardt

Playing tracks by

The Barry Sisters, Les Yeux Noirs, Eric Slabiak & Olivier Slabiak, Rosita Serrano, Sam Lee and Max Reinhardt's Suitcase Band.

Seventy-five years on from the first arrival of the Kindertransport in Britain, the concourses and platforms of stations across the country will burst into life with Suitcase, an original mix of site-specific promenade theatre and music which marks those arrivals. Suitcase reflects the stories of those who were there. Last month, we were joined by Executive Producer Jane Merkin to hear about the projects origins and its resonance today. This month Suitcase's Musical Director and Klezmer in the Park Host, BBC's Radio 3 Max Reinhardt, joins us in conversation to tell us more about the music within the performances. Max specifically highlights JMI's involvement of the additional trio of musicians, Sophie Solomon (Violin), Francesca Ter-Berg (Cello) and Sam Lee (Vocals).
