Classical Showcase continues its series of concerts from the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland on Friday evening at 7 with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Mariss Jansons. They’ll play a program of music by Brahms, Shostakovich and Ravel.
Animation of Anne Frank, the Graphic Biography
This animation shows extracts fromÂ Anne Frank: The Anne Frank House Authorized Graphic Biography (2010) by Sid Jacobson and Ernie ColÃ³n. The biography tells the story of Anne Frank’s life, and ends with the return of Otto Frank — who was the only one of the eight people in hiding in the secret annex to survive the Holocaust — and the publication of Anne’s diary and the opening of the Anne Frank House.
The biography will be published at the beginning of July in the Netherlands, and later this year in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
You can hear more about upcoming summer reading at 11am on Friday’s All Sides Weekend, featuring WOSU FM Classical Music Host Christopher Purdy, with WOSU book critic Kassie Rose, book critic Bill Eichenberger, and Capital University English Professor and poet Kevin Griffith.
