Drawing on a remarkable archive of family letters and diaries, Philippe Sands offers a unique account of the daily life of a senior Nazi and fugitive, SS Brigadeführer Otto Freiherr von Wächter. Following the war, he spent three years as a fugitive, before attempting to flee to Argentina on the ‘ratline’. He died unexpectedly, in July 1949, a few days after spending a weekend with an ‘old comrade’. What happened to Otto Wächter, and how did he die?

The penultimate concert in the re:connect series explores the theme of ‘awakening’. Alongside works by Sibelius and Nielsen, the performance features Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll. Written as a birthday gift for his wife Cosima, she woke on Christmas morning 1869 to it being performed on the stairs of their home. The concert closes with Mozart’s Symphony No 34, the last symphony written in Salzburg before ‘awakening’ his independent career in Vienna and beyond.
