MUSICA NON GRATA - Music by Terezín Composers
|30 Kč – 620 Kč||Buy tickets|
Opening concert of the Everlasting Hope music festival in cooperation with
Musica non grata.
The concert Music by Terezín Composers from a cycle Musica non grata is also
a first concert in cooperation with the music festival Everlasting Hope.
The concert opens with pieces by Pavel Haas – The Study for string
orchestra, an impassioned statement composed during his incarceration in the
Theresienstadt camp-ghetto, a year before his death. Amidst the uncertainty as
to what the future would bring, he wrote a piece comparable with the greatest
20th-century works of music. The concert will also feature his Suite transcribed
for oboe and strings by Ondřej Kyas.
There is also on the programme an arie from Viktor Ullman’s Der Kaiser von
Atlantis (The Emperor of Atlantis). Unlike other Terezín composers pieces, his
opera was never performed in the concentration camp as a parable about a mad
dictator conceived in Theresienstadt was too evident. Both the composer and the
librettist, Petr Kien, were murdered in Auschwitz.
The presenter of the evening will be Martina Kociánová.
