In 50 compositions, we bring alive poems from one of the most turbulent periods in European history: the first World War. Together with other European literature lovers, we brought to light known and unknown poems and other texts from that period.
The war affected the whole of Europe : from Scandinavia to the Iberic peninsula, from the British isles to the Balkan, from the Caucasus to the Middle Eeast – we looked for texts from all the places where the war left its mark.
Young and established composers have beencommissioned to write new music for chamber choir, based on the texts from 1914-1918. The new music was performed – and will be performed – in a series of concerts and festivals all over Europe.
