STRING ORCHESTRA - written on behalf of JOWest

Two birthdays in one. This work, originally for string quartet (YME-2019/001) was written in commemoration of the end of WWI (100 years ago in 2019), and looks back on the first performance of the world's most famous Christmas carol, 'Silent Night' (200 years ago in 2019). That song also played an important role in the so-called Christmas truces during WWI: by singing this song, the soldiers came out of the trenches on Christmas night and fraternized. A piece about (the dark sides of) the night, but also about hope and the fact that music is able to forget and transcend the worst misery.

Performers on the live recording: JOWest led by Bart Snauwaert in CC De Grote Post, Ostend on 24/03/2019
