Wertheim Park, a setting of the poetry of Susan de Sola by composer Lori Laitman, was commissioned by Music of Remembrance in 2022 to mark its landmark 25th concert season. Soprano Alisa Jordheim interprets this haunting song, a deeply moving elegy for the Dutch Jews lost to the Holocaust. The stellar instrumental ensemble, drawn from the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, features Laura DeLuca, clarinet; Mikhail Shmidt, violin; Jonathan Green, double bass; and Mina Miller, piano. MOR will stream this special program beginning on January 27, 2023 to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
