Kammermusik, for harpsichord and seven instruments (1936). Tremendous. Krása was incarcerated in Terezin by the Nazis, and murdered by them in 1944 in Auschwitz.

Passacaglia and Fugue for String Trio (1944). – Hans Krása‘s last composition, before his murder in 1944 in Auschwitz. Sorrow; nostalgia; triumph of the artist.
