“May our life path continue being music, that which one day saved lives.”
This CD is the result of years of research, dedication and effort.
Our wish is for this recording to pay tribute to the people who suffered one of the worst and most cruel periods in history, the Holocaust, Shoah.
The music presented by Dúo Metha in this recording, offers works which were played in the concentration camps and the ghettoes, composed under terrible conditions; or which played a fundamental role during the Second World War; as well as our own original compositions, inspired by and dedicated to all the victims.
In these songs, we gather the memory and pay tribute with the greatest respect and admiration to those who suffered, gave their lives, fought and saw in music the means to save their lives.
The objective is to raise awareness in society and prevent the tragedy from repeating itself.
Who we are
Dúo Metha is the result of the common passion two siblings, Jorge and Rocio, have for music. After years of studying separately, one in Poland and the other in Spain, they decided to create Dúo Metha. They both studied their undergraduate and master’s studies under great maestros.
They have performed in some of the greatest music halls in Spain, Poland, Slovakia, Italy, and England.
For the past years, Dúo Metha has dedicated their time, effort and passion to the Shoah project. The cd “ The Sound of the Holocaust ” captures the entire essence of their work.
The project, “Remembrance of the Holocaust,” was born after our first trip to the concentration and extermination camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau. After extensive research we did about the different concentration camps, ghettoes and particularly the Auschwitz extermination camp’s archives, a desire arose in us to expand and make known the role music played throughout this difficult time, in the hope that we never forget this historical period nor those who suffered in it.
During these years of research, we have had the privilege of meeting numerous survivors of the Shoah, analyze documents, original sheet music, photographs, etc.
Using music as a universal language, our wish is that this period in time is never forgotten; our contribution is to share with everyone as many real facts, situations and personal stories that will help them understand and learn more about this moment in history.
“Go through the world and tell everything I have told you,”
Józef Paczynski, Auschwitz survivor.
