Czech composer and pianist Oldřich František Korte (1926-2014) persevered through a very difficult career interruptions due to political tumult in his home country. He was imprisoned in a concentration camp during his studies at the Prague Conservatory and though he was forced to find employment outside of the arts upon his return to society. His musical language does not rely upon one particular style or genre.
