The composer Konstanty Regamey (1907-1982) in Warsaw and his part in the Anti-Nazi underground
When Poland was occupied by the Germans in WWII, all cultural activities by Poles were prohibited (except the most trivial ones). Still, there were a number of "illegal" concerts in private homes. In one of them, the great Quintet for clarinet, bassoon, violin, cello and piano by Regamey received its first performance. The conposer was also active in the resistance movement. After the Warsaw Uprising Regamey was imprisoned in Stutthof concentration camp, but because he was of Swiss descent, he was released and sent to Switzerland. There he worked in the fields of indology, linguistics and music.
