AN EXPRESSION OF UNSPEAKABLE TERROR. NOTES TO MARTINU’S WORK MEMORIAL TO LIDICE
Languages of publication
In his Memorial to Lidice (composed in the summer of 1943) Martinů pays tribute to the complete extinction of the Czech village Lidice and its inhabitants by the Nazis. In the composition he uses – as he has never done before in this way – many traditional idioms and quotation-like elements in order to express all the sadness, fright and pain of his subject.
