Vasa Prihoda (1900 - 1960)

Váša Příhoda’s name, in recent times, has been tarnished by queries regarding his association with Alma Rosé, whom he married in 1930 and divorced in 1935. Alma, daughter of Jewish violinist Arnold Rosé (with whom she made a recording of the Bach D minor Double Concerto in 1928) failed to escape Nazi Germany and died in Auschwitz. Příhoda was criticised for making no attempt to save her, although he claimed not to know of her capture and tragic fate. Příhoda chose to stay and work in Germany under Nazi rule and was suspected of having divorced his Jewish wife in order to do so. This sad episode, which bears witness so poignantly to the hideous political interference of World War II in musical life, was to blight Příhoda’s post-war career. Accused of collaboration, he was unable to return to his native land for some years, and later took Turkish citizenship.
