It's not that people don't like classical music. It's that they don't have the chance to understand and to experience it.
Zuzana - Music is Life
A story of love, tyranny and triumph
Zuzana: Music is Life is the dark and triumphant story told by Zuzana Ruzickova (1927 - 2017), and how she became a world-famous harpsichordist and interpreter of Bach under the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia after surviving three concentration camps during her teenage years. Zuzana’s story is remarkable not just because she returned to Czechoslovakia after the war to fulfill her childhood dream of a career in music; but also in how she navigated political and religious persecution while becoming a tour-de-force in concerts and competitions around the world. As she reveals her life of hope and fear, the little-known story of Czechoslovakia emerges, from the promise of 1930s democracy to the Nazi invasion, followed by the grinding brutality of forty years of Soviet occupation. Zuzana transcends the personal as she shares her story, in a deeply affecting look at the redemptive power of art during the Czech Republic’s turbulent 20th century.
