The 2nd Wolf Durmashkin Composition Award (WDCA)
The WDCA will continue in 2020 in Vilnius, where musicians lived in the Vilnius Ghetto.
The competition to commemorate the murdered Jewish musician Wolf Durmashkin continues the commemoration work on the theme "Music and the Holocaust".
The occasion in 2018 was the DP orchestra's 70th anniversary concert on 10 May 1948 in Landsberg. Now the competition is taking place in Vilnius, Lithuania, to commemorate life and suffering, resistance and hope.
But also to look into the future, into a common future. That is why composers all over the world are invited to accompany this perspective with their works and let us all participate with their music.
With the competition and a concert we would like to commemorate the murdered and forgotten Jewish musician Wolf Durmashkin and thus initiate a new kind of culture of remembrance of the history of National Socialism and the Holocaust.
