MUSIC OF REMEMBRANCE

Music of Remembrance (MOR) is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 by artistic director Mina Miller to remember the Holocaust through music. With concert performances, educational programs, recordings, and commissions of new works by some of today’s leading composers, MOR honours those of all backgrounds who found the strength to create even in the face of suffering, and those who had the courage to speak out against cruelty. Their stories communicate urgent lessons for today, and look beyond the Holocaust itself to the experience of others who have been excluded or persecuted for their faith, ethnicity, gender or sexuality. Along with its large and varied repertoire of Holocaust-era music, MOR commissions and premieres new works by some of today’s leading composers, building bridges across generations and sharing stories that underline the Holocaust’s urgent relevance for us now.

The Parting (Naxos 8.669044) is among the more than 30 new works that MOR has commissioned in its first two decades, including chamber music, song, oratorio, opera, ballet and film score. MOR’s mission is not religious, nor is its scope limited to Jewish music or experience. Its commissions have also focused on the Holocaust’s impact on homosexuals, women, children, Roma, political prisoners and courageous freethinkers.
