Meyer, Jaco: Lament en route to Auschwitz 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    I decided to compose a work about those who were forcefully deported to Auschwitz as part of the notorious genocide. It gives the listener a feel of uncomfortableness and confusion in a slowly immersing manner. The alternative techniques in the flute part, scattered in a demented way, testifies that this composition is far removed from the conventional music that listeners might expect. This is also because I approached this work at a very personal level, sharing my idiosyncratic explorations and expressions openly with the listener. It is dedicated to all the Jewish prisoners who were taken to Auschwitz by train.

  • Technical specs: 

    Stereo speakers with music stand in the middle for flutist.
