With selected music of the (late) romantic and modern periods, humanity in times of war is traced.
In this moving program, the former world-class bass-baritone Thomas Quasthoff and the award-winning Amatis Trio deal with a topic that has been an essential part of our history since time immemorial, and yet could hardly be more topical: war, and its consequences on people and humanity.
Based on field post letters and diaries, paired with selected music of the (late) romantic and modern periods, Quasthoff and the Amatis Trio trace the humanity in times of war and the personal struggle of the people behind the statistics and impressively show that interpersonal tolerance, dignity and appreciation - even among enemies - are, and must be, essential pillars of our community.
