On Saturday I spent the evening at Berwaldhallen listening to young composer Jacob Mühlrads premier performance of Kaddish. A work based on his grandfathers testimony of life in Auswitch.
Vocals were performed by Radiokören together with Eva Dahlgren. This evening, the quire became the voices of those who could no longer speak. Those who's voices were silenced and stolen by something far more evil then what is even possible to comprehend.
Incredibly powerful and beautiful work. Even though it hurts right into the bone I want to listen to it again.
And again. And again.
