" 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
 
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 in 1996 for Giora Feidman and the Arditti String Quartet.

Oliveros soundtrack is also available as independant concert adaptation: the suites f. clarinet and string quartett or string orchestra.
Detailed information and material for both formulas - the silent movie with Olivero's soundtrack and the 2 chamber music versions -  are available at ART WORKs Berlin.


Another of Oliver's works gets an increasing, but deeply sad importance in our period of worldwide wars and struggles and is currently often performed:  "Neharo't, Neharo't
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.

The shadow which brings dreams, a scenique concert for 2 children choirs and chamber groups, is dedicated to original writings of children who had been deported to Theresienstadt, which, surrounded by death and despair, speak in simple words upon hope and the beauty of the creation.
2018, eigthy years after the pogrom night of November 9, 1938, Olivero sets against one of the darkest periods of human history the spiritual and mental  strength of the victims: a hymn to life.
