In recent years, Krása’s children’s opera has continued to inspire other artists, leading to outstanding stage productions or new works. Some of these new compositions lend themselves to joint performances with Brundibár.
Katz und Spatz for 8-part mixed chorus
A moving choral piece, inspired by performances of the opera and contemporary eyewitness reports
PAUL ARON SANDFORT
Overture to Brundibár for chamber orchestra
composed later by the former Terezín trumpet player, to serve as prelude to the opera
Hommage à "Brundibár" for small orchestra
also suitable as an overture at staged performances of the opera
Brundibár-Suite for ensemble
an arrangement of excerpts from the opera
Brundibár Suite for ensemble
arranged in 2011 for the Nash Ensemble, scored slightly smaller than the original
And You And I for soprano, choruses and instruments
This piece is based on a musical motif from the opera, the Song of Songs, and a poem written by a girl interned in Terezín.
