Rebroadcast: The Thinking Heart
In this episode we revisit Martin Steingesser’s The Thinking Heart in honor of its inclusion in one of our recent grants. A 2013 grant brought the performance to Bates College, where it was very well received. Here we hear a recording made in 2009 of The Thinking Heart, A Performance in Two Voices with Cello by Martin Steingesser, Judy Tierney and Robin Jellis. The Thinking Heart is an original arrangement of journal and letters written by Etty Hillesum, a Dutch woman who chose to enter a World War II concentration camp in order to be with her people.
