Notes and Editorial Reviews

Shoah for Solo Violin and Sacred Temple was written by spanish composer Jorge Grundman (1961-) to homage the Victims of Holocaust. This release is a luxury Book CD which contains the World Premiere Recording of the longest partita for solo violin ever written. Recorded with the Stradivarius "Auer" 1691 by Vicente Cueva, the work contains six musical movementes and an additional one with words which is included in the book in three languages: English, French and Spanish. The ABC newspaper describes after the absolute premiere ""... A sum of emotions…Honoring the memory of the victims of the Jewish holocaust is the primary objective of this emotionally charged composition. But it does not stay there; the contained and Read more transmitted emotion and the evocative power of the music transcend the own and tragic real history that counts and rises like a universal feeling, a superstructure, above the well-known individual or collective tragedies of determined spaces and times. "Shoah" is a prayer, a cry and a work, above any kind of belief…". This work will be on worldwide tour through Jewish Museums, Synagogues and Cathedrals. The six movements of the partita are: Yom HaShoah, Getto Warszawskie, Terezín Through the Eyes of the Children, Babi Yar, Bergen-Belsen and The Last Breath. This work is about everything we did not do, but that ought to make us feel permanently ashamed. Read less
