To the memory of our belovedAdd to calendar
Barbara Hannigan, Principal Guest Conductor of Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, combines moments of mourning with a peace manifestation – all performed by Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Gothenburg Symphonic Choir, Barbara Hannigan conductor, Veronika Eberle violin and song soloists. Alban Berg’s moving Violin Concerto, passionately played by Veronika Eberle, was dedicated to “The Memory of an Angel”, a young human being who really shone during her short life. And, as is the case with people who are dearly missed, the memory lives on. Those memories are given space in the Requiem, and Mozart’s mass for the departed is both comforting and strengthening. A yearning for peace that also permeates Schoenberg’s appeal for world peace, Friede auf Erden.
