Death is big.
We are his

laughing mouths. 
When we think ourselves in the middle of life
he dares to cry
in the middle of us.


Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 14 is his counterpoint to Britten’s »War Requiem.« It advocates for the brief moments before the redemption of the end. »I want the listeners of this symphony to understand that life is truly precious. The piece is a passionate protest against death.« In his Symphony No. 2, Arthur Honegger fashions the voices of war into sound, and sends a fateful trumpet to end the suffering.
