On November 25, 1941, 998 Jewish men and women from Munich, who had been deported to Kaunas in Lithuania shortly before, were murdered there. This program between contemporary orchestral music and youth culture is dedicated to them and to all people who suffered and are currently suffering from violence.

 

The Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie under the direction of Artem Lonhinov will play the composition, joined by a production by Barry Goldman of rap songs and texts by “Generation Commemoration”, a group of young Munich residents who deal with new forms of commemoration.

"Inspiring! The news that there are young people in Munich who are committed to commemoration - and through forms they have created themselves. That gave me the inspiration for Memorias Liminal."
