There are events in the history of history that cannot be forgotten, that must be remembered and remembered. That is why the orchestra together with People's Artist of Ukraine Hobart Earle prepared a concert for the International Holocaust Memorial Day, as well as for the 75th anniversary of Auschwitz's liberation.
These terrifying events have forced the whole world to look again at the problems of the value of human life, outlook and peace. The problem of collective memory, which leads to the constant repetition of humanity's mistakes, tries, among other things, to carry out, through culture, its chronicle, chronicle of feelings and experiences, to transmit and make clear to the new generation not only the facts, but also to realize the terrible losses and sacrifices of humanity. Music is not only an ornament in our lives, but also a monument of events and a compass for the future.
The concert will feature Mozart's Maurische Trauermusik, Piano Concerto No. 2 and the Chopin Orchestra and the huge «Kaddish» by Weinberg Symphony No. 21, which is dedicated to the memory of those killed in the Warsaw ghetto.
Symphony No. 21 "Kaddish" by Weinberg is the composer's latest completed symphony, his creative will, dedicated to the memory of the dead, and completes a number of his Holocaust-related works.
