Meira Warshauer composer
Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra | Petr Vronsky conductor
Symphony No. 1, Living Breathing Earth, inspired by the rhythms and shadings of the earth, represents our planet in its radiant fullness, pulsing with breath, and alive with all variety of creatures and plants living in symbiosis with each other. Tekeeyah (a call) is Warshauer’s call for an awakening to our true essence as human beings. This piece makes use of the shofar, the horn of a ram or other kosher animal that is used to wake up the soul. In this concerto, the shofar calls to all of humanity to rouse us from our slumber of complacency.
