Info
Richard Strauss composed the Metamorphoses under the impression of the destruction of great opera and concert houses in Munich, Berlin, Dresden and Vienna at the end of the Second World War. Strauss himself described his instrumental work for 23 solo strings as a “reflection of the whole of my past life”. Its melancholic and melodic transparency has made it a popular choice for obsequies. Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 13 can be perceived as a “Requiem”. Its first movement is based on the poem “Babi Yar” by the Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko, in which the Nazi massacre in the ravine of Babi Yar is compared to the anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union. Matthias Goerne will sing the bass solo under the direction of Dima Slobodeniouk.
