Theme from 'Schindler's List,' John Williams

Enjoy this moving performance of the Theme from Schindler's List' by John Williams performed by Simone Lamsma (violin), Davida Scheffers (cor anglais), and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra. Davida, who performs on the cor anglais in this performance, suffers from an extremely painful neuromuscular condition that derailed her career, and she thought she would never get to play in a professional orchestra again. The emotional performance of John Williams' masterpiece brings forth the depth of human suffering, especially as experienced by those who died in the Holocaust. As Tolstoy says "If you feel pain you're alive, if you feel other's pain you're human."
