JEWISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA MUNICH, CONDUCTOR: DANIEL GROSSMANN
Director: Miriam Ibrahim
If the Jewish-Polish composer Mieczysław Weinberg is known for anything, then it is for the opera “The Passenger” – his Holocaust survivor story. The Jewish Chamber Orchestra Munich takes the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth to dedicate a festival to his multi-faceted work and unusual biography.
Weinberg expert Verena Mogl connects the composer’s biography and work to politics and contemporary history.
