Hochgeladene Datei

Xiaoyong Chen has been commissioned by the Internationaal Cellofestival Zutphen to compose a vocal work with ensemble accompaniment. The new work “Liberation - A Requiem for Humanity” for Tibetan singers, accordion, 2 percussionists, 7 cellos, double bass and mixed choir will now have its world premiere on August 27, 2021.

The idea and inspiration for this vocal work came from the book “The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying” (Sogyal Rinpoche), says the composer. He sees his composition as a kind of requiem for all people who have died in wars, catastrophes and persecutions.
