Ullmann "Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Rilke"

Viktor Ullmann was a composer who served as a soldier in World War I. From 1942 to 1944 he was imprisoned in the concentration camp Theresienstadt/Terezín.

Among that compositions are "Die Weise von Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke/The Lay of Love and Death of the Cornet Christoph Rilke" written in 1944.
