We Want The Light
The extended DVD version of Christopher Nupen’s award-winning film about freedom, survival and the extraordinary place of music in the Nazi concentration camps.

Includes performances of music by Mahler, Bach, Schoenberg, Bruch, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Schubert and Brahms.
"Christopher Nupen's extraordinarily powerful film…offers a rare and authoritative insight into how two centuries of assimilation ended in the almost ineffable horror of the Nazi death camps. ... this is profoundly moving and compulsive television." (The Observer)
