About Paul Hermann

Paul Hermann

Cellist and composer Paul Hermann steered into a new direction, several times during his life,  to escape from the claws of anti-Semitism. As a young musician, there was no future for him in Hungary and he set off to Berlin. But in 1933, life in the dynamic metropolis became increasingly difficult. He performed as long as he could throughout Europe, with his own music and works by his teachers Kodály and Bartók. Ultimately, in Toulouse, the Hitler's long arm caught him.
