Zuzana: Music Is Life

Thu 21 June 2018

Following the fire on Friday night, CCA will be closed until at least Monday 25 June. Refunds for this event will be available from our box office and over the phone when the building reopens. Our thoughts are with our friends and neighbours at Glasgow School of Art and O2 ABC, and the incredible fire service.

Zuzana Ruzickova, who passed away last year aged 90, survived three concentration camps, including Auschwitz, and decades-long oppression and harassment under the totalitarian regime in her native Czech Republic to become a world-famous harpsichordist and the only musician to ever record all the keyboard works of Bach. Here she speaks candidly about her miraculous survival, the struggle to get back to normal life after liberation, her resistance to communism and, most importantly, her endless, unconditional love for life - and music.
