Ariel Horowitz performs at The Altejudenrampe at Auschwitz
Beijing 2012 Junior competitor and London 2016 Senior semi-finalist Ariel Horowitz last week gave the first ever concert at The Altejudenrampe at Auschwitz with Sebastian Zinca. The performance included a new composition entitled Seed for Peace and an arrangement of Roxanna Panufnik’s Hora Bessarabia, the Senior section commission for the Menuhin Competition London 2016.
Ariel and Sebastian’s new venture Seed for Peace was born from Ariel meeting with Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor, who expressed a desire to hear music being performed at Auschwitz, which led to this moving musical testimony performed on 30th June. A summary of the story behind Seed for Peace is available to read here.
This monumental performance at The Altejudenrampe was live streamed, which you can relive here, and visit Seed for Peace’s facebook page to find out more about Ariel and Sebastian’s journey to Auschwitz.
