Hermann Wolff Room
Based on Leonard Bernstein’s First Symphony Jeremiah, the participants will explore different musical forms of lamentation. The biblical Jeremiah was not the only person to give vent to his discontent in lamentations: musical cries of pain are also to be found in other cultures and eras. What do we call for in our everyday lives? How would we translate our suffering, protests, or accusations into music?
