STRING ORCHESTRA - commissioned by JOWest
Two anniversaries in one. This work, originally for string quartet (YME-2019/001) was written for the commemoration of the end of WW I (100 years ago in 2019), and refers also to the first performance of world's most famous Christmas song, 'Silent Night' (200 years ago in 2019). That song played an important part during the so called Christmas truce in WW I: while singing this song the soldiers left their trenches on Christmas Eve, for reconcilement. A piece about (the darkest hours of) the night, but also about hope en het feit dat muziek in staat is de ergste ellende te doen vergeten en te overstijgen.
Performed by JOWest in CC De Grote Post, Ostend
