The First and Second World Wars cut short the lives of many composers and musicians who would have gone on to greater things had they lived. Here are a few to remember.
A Czech pianist and composer, Klein organized the cultural life in Theresienstadt concentration camp. In 1940 he had been offered a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music in London, but by that time anti-Jewish legislation prevented his emigration. In Theresienstadt, he wrote works for string quartet, a string trio, and a piano sonata. He died in unclear circumstances during the liquidation of the Fürstengrube camp in January 1945.
