Concert in an abandoned synagogue

by Eiram Marie June. 15, 2011 5801 views

My friends who sing in the Choir Gaudium Cantorum invited me for their performance in an abandonded synagogue. It was a very special evening - the setting made this concert a very unique experience. They performed Sephardic songs and a Samuel Barber´s Adagio op. 11 - a very beautiful and soothing music.
What made the biggest impression on me was however a young Czech composer´s composition: Jan Šikl - Prayer for Raisel. He used in his composition the authentic voice of a thirteen old girl Raisel Melzak who survived holocaust and was recorded in 1946 in a childrens home in France.
