The International Holocaust Remembrance Day Concert
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is perceived mostly as a sunny author; at the peak of his although short but intensive career he dedicated himself also to melancholic topics. The Symphony in G minor is a representative opus in this sense. The human hate produces countless activity variants. However, it produces also a certain serum against the absurdity of human thinking – e. g. suggestive artworks. The creator of the „new music“ of the 20th century Arnold Schönberg dedicated his chamber cantata from the Warsaw Ghetto to the Holocaust victims. Scepticism and nihilism dominate also the drama of the Symphony No. 6 by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, the distressing swan song of this passionate man and maker.
