Chamber Music IV: Against forgetfulness
Mon, 01. Feb 2021, 20:00
Chamber music in an unconventional atmosphere
A memorial concert for Ernst Silberstein, Max Nelken, Alfons Hirsch and Kurt Oppenheimer
A commemoration in text, image and music of four former members of the orchestra of the Deutsches Opernhaus who were murdered or forced to flee during the National Socialist reign of terror. We revisit their biographies in an evening of music and personal documents.
For the musicians of the orchestra of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, their series of chamber-music sessions is a wish come true. Taking their inspiration from key operas on the programme, they put together concert programmes linked to works that they hold particularly dearly. They are assisted in the project not only by singers from the ensemble but also by guests from outside.
