OUR WORLD IS ON FIRE

An impassioned cry from what might be the “final generation”: “Our World is on Fire“. Inspired by the “Fridays for the Future” movement, German composer Rainer Bartesch has written a contemporary oratorio which serves as a clear warning that the physical and spiritual well-being of our society and of our planet must be put at risk no longer. The call goes out from the Senior Choir of the Wien-Mauer Rudolf Steiner School and the SchallMauer Youth Orchestra, a collaboration with the Freie Musikschule Wien (Free Music School of Vienna). The Wien-Mauer Rudolf Steiner School is the oldest Waldorf (Steiner) school in Austria. Their Seniors work with the Freie Musikschule Wien at regular intervals on large-scale projects for choir and orchestra. Previous collaborations include Karl Orff’s “Carmina Burana”, a Requiem by Luigi Cherubini, Antonio Vivaldi’s “Gloria”, and a Franz Schubert Mass. Their most recent performance was Karl Jenkins’ multi-faith work “The Armed Man – A Mass for Peace”.
