The haunting legacy of WWII preserved through sound

Jeremy Eichler's new book, “Times Echo” explores the profound power of classical music as a bridge to the past, providing emotional context to history. He writes - "We listen to moments of lost time, summoning from the ether glimmers of what another era has written, heard, dreamed, hoped and mourned. The music may also recall visions of a more fair and just world that remain no less vital today for having not yet come to pass." “Times Echo” has been short-listed for the Baillie Gifford, the UK's premier nonfiction prize.
