A Ukrainian requiem

In 1941, over 33,000 Jews were murdered by German National Socialists in the Babyn Yar ravine in what is now the Ukrainian capital of Kiev. The identity of countless victims is still unknown today. In memory of this, the Ukrainian composer Yevhen Stankovych wrote the Kaddish Requiem »Babyn Yar« for narrator, soloists, choir and orchestra, which was premiered at the National Opera in Kiev in 2016. With the performance of this work as part of the Vienna Festival, the internationally renowned Ukrainian conductor Oksana Lyniv, together with the Kyiv Symphony Orchestra, spans an arc from the past to the present and shows that remembrance is a work on the future.
