Zuzana: Music Is Life

December 16 at 12:00 noon
Peter Getzels and Harriet Gordon Getzels in person

Czech harpsichordist Zuzana Ruzickova (1927–2017) is the only musician to have recorded the complete keyboard works of Bach. Even while staying in Nazi camps and living under communism, Zuzana never abandoned her work. Dispatched by the regime to perform in international competitions, she became a tour de force abroad. Zuzana: Music Is Life is a compelling portrait of an artist  who persevered through Europe’s traumatic twentieth century. (Peter and Harriet Getzels, 2017, subtitles, 83 minutes)
