BETTY OLIVERO

" The aim of my musical creation is
 ... to participate in the essence of oral tradition:
transmission of essence, preservation and change ...

Neharo't, Neharo't

  Audio
 
In our period of worldwide wars and struggles, Olivero's "Neharo't, Neharo't gets an increasing, but deeply sad importance and is currently often performed: 
With women in mourning,
mothers, widows and sisters who had lost their loved ones, live recorded and woven into the composed music, Olivero gives the suffering of the victims in the battle zones of the world a moving voice.

Another of her compositions,
The shadow which brings dreams, is dedicated to original writings of children who had been deported to Theresienstadt, is meant to be a message of  hope, since the children, even though surrounded by death and despair, speak in simple words upon hope and the beauty of the creation.

Among the many works she composed for great international orchestras and chamber music ensembles, there's the successful original soundtrack for the German silent movie "Der Golem" commissioned by ART WORKs Berlin for Giora Feidman and the Arditti String Quartet. After it's successful world premier in 1996, the music went around the world, accompanying the silent movie or as chamber music version for string orchestra: suites f. clarinet and string quartett or string orchestra.
