Sturm und Klang - Simply for the tribute

A tribute concert to composers censored by Germany's Third Reich regime

The program is structured around three perspectives: a work representing the art rejected by the Nazis (Entartete Musik): Arnold Schoenberg's magnificent Serenade op 24; rarely performed vocal works by two composers who died in the camps: Viktor Ullmann's Drei ijiddische lieder, and Pavel Haas's Seven Songs in Folk Styles; and a contemporary work composed as a tribute to the victims of the Holocaust, Où est la plaie? by Brussels composer Adrien Tsilogiannis, based on the poem Les Charniers by Eugène Guillevic. The musical worlds are contrasting, but all highly expressive, combining modesty, lightness, pain and existential questioning. The broad sound palette of the instrumental ensemble contributes to the richness of the musical discourse.
