Heard here in it's world premiere recording, The Parting is a daring opera by award-winning composer Tom Cipullo and librettist David Mason that explores the life and art of Miklos Radnoti, one of the most important poetic witnesses to the Holocaust, and one of it's tragic victims. Radnoti's poems express emotions from love and enchantment to absolute loss, and The Parting includes texts found in his jacket pocket after his death. This opera is a profound meditation on what it is about art that outlives us, that enables us to be creative even in the face of unimaginable adversity, and reminds us to guard against hatred and to celebrate what makes us human. Music of Remembrance (MOR) is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 by artistic director Mina Miller to remember the Holocaust through music. Along with it's large and varied repertoire of Holocaust-era music, MOR commissions and premieres new works by some of today's leading composers, building bridges across generations and sharing stories that underline the Holocaust's urgent relevance for us now. The Parting is among the more than 30 new works that MOR has commissioned in it's first two decades, including chamber music, song, oratorio, opera, ballet and film score. MOR's mission is not religious, nor is it's scope limited to Jewish music or experience.
