AMADOKA in der Sprache zeitgenössischer klassischer Musik


Ein Konzert nach dem Roman von Sofia Andrukhovych

“Amadoka” is a concert of contemporary classical music that is based on a novel by Sofia Andruhovych. It consists of three parts, each of which metaphorically and literally describes traumatic periods in Ukrainian history, during which Ukrainian identity, culture, and the lives of many people were deliberately destroyed.
In the novel "Amadoka", the history of the past is tightly intertwined with the present, when Stalinist repressions of the Ukrainian intelligentsia and the extermination of Jews in a western Ukrainian town are manifested as unhealed wounds in the life of modern Kyiv. The legend of the existence of a lake called “Amadoka”, which was depicted on medieval maps on the territory of Ukraine, turns into an image of the irreversible loss of information, facts, and memory. Is it possible to find a standing point to start restoration when this base is lost or destroyed on purpose?
Three Ukrainian composers translate the text into the language of contemporary classical music in order to reveal those indescribable themes of the novel, which can only be tried to talk about with the help of more abstract forms, to make an attempt to feel those things that are difficult to name.
The concert takes place as part of the opening of the "translationale berlin 2022", a festival of literary translations (30th September - 3rd October 2022).
