A fascinating documentary detailing how the Nazis tried to destabilise the British economy by printing fake fivers.  The programme centred around the testimony of some of the surviving former concentration camp prisoners used by the SS to print the money.

This is a poignant story which called for thoughtful musical interpretation. We wrote mostly for solo, sometimes two, instruments only. Our cellist Helen Rathbone, clarinettist Andy Beer and accordionist Igor Outekine interpreted the music beautifully.
