Violins of Hope

Violins of Hope is a unique project inspired by a private collection of violins, violas and cellos lovingly restored over the past two decades by Israeli violin maker Amnon Weinstein. The instruments all belonged to Jews who played them before and during the Holocaust. Many were donated by or bought from survivors; some arrived through family members and many simply carry Stars of David as a decoration and an identity tag declaring: “We were played by proud people.” These precious instruments can now be heard again even though their former owners were silenced.

Music of Remembrance will bring a quartet of the Violins of Hope instruments to Seattle for a special narrated concert at Benaroya Hall on March 1, featuring the core members of the Music of Remembrance ensemble, all members of the Seattle Symphony. These artists will be performing on the Holocaust-era Violins of Hope instruments in a program of music by composers lost to the Holocaust.

Time

Fall Concert: Passage: Confronting Intolerance

Music of Remembrance presents a concert featuring two world premieres inspired by the Holocaust’s lessons for today’s world. Iconic composer Ryuichi Sakamoto's compelling Passage depicts the struggle of a refugee to escape violence and persecution in his own land. Shinji Eshima's Veritas is a soulful statement against religious intolerance. Also, American composer Paul Schoenfield's Camp Songs with its setting of bitingly ironic poems that Sachsenhausen political prisoner Aleksander Kulisiewicz dared create under the noses of his Nazi captors.
