About

La Passion selon Marc. Une Passion après Auschwitz (The Passion According to Mark. A Passion after Auschwitz), premiered in April 2017. The project was commissioned to French composer Michaël Levinas by the Swiss association 'Musique for a present time', as part of the events commemorating the 500th anniversary of Luther’s reform. This original oratorio is not only a reinterpretation or a mere revisitation of the Passion - what the many references to Bach’s Passions could lead to believe, it painfully faces, indeed, the irreconciliable nature of the Passion and the Holocaust.

"The music in this Passion is a reflection on what connects these two religious traditions [judaism and protestan-tism], but also on this irretrievable loss, the 6 million people who died during the Holocaust, the silence of men, the silence of God. This is a Passion without redemption. What remains is the matter of survival." - Michaël Levinas

Recorded in high-definition at the Eglise Saint-François (Lausanne) in April 2017
Directed for TV by Jean-Marc Chevillard
