In this chamber concert, our musicians focus on works reacting directly or caused by the great catastrophes of the 20th century: Viktor Ullmann’s String Quartet No. 3 was written during his imprisonment at the Theresienstadt (Terezín) camp. Lord Byron’s "Ode to Napoleon Buonaparte" is a scornful reckoning with Napoleon in reaction to his abdication. Arnold Schoenberg set the text during World War II for piano quintet and narrator as a political plea against tyranny and for the values of democracy. Written in 1931, the song "Dover Beach" for string quartet and baritone by Samuel Barber can be read as a warning of the omens of World War II. It deals with the loneliness humans feel when they have lost their faith. The last piece of the programme is the only piano quintet by the French composer Louis Vierne, written in 1917 as an immediate reaction to the loss of his 17-year-old son on one of the battlefields of World War I. In the quintet, Vierne saw a "profound expression of my tender feelings and the tragic fate of my child".
