In Honor Of The Holocaust Days Of Remembrance, Composer David Chesky Releases His New Video "Psalm No. 1 For String Orchestra"
New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Pamaluc Music) Composer David Chesky honors the Holocaust Days of Remembrance. A stunning classical composition juxtaposed with enthralling photos of the Holocaust.

Composer David Chesky's haunting new video, "Psalm No.1 for String Orchestra," is juxtaposed with photos of children and families held in concentration camps during World War II. The music is stunning and combined with this imagery edited by the composer's wife Patricia Dinely Chesky, provides an honest sadness. The work searingly captures the horrific reality of the Holocaust.

The orchestral work is performed by the Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg, featuring violinist Christian Richter and is conducted by acclaimed interpreter of American repertoire, Stephen Somary. "Psalm No. 1 for String Orchestra" is a beautifully moving piece, and as Chesky interprets, "This is a composition in remembrance, and in the hope that the human kind will learn from its past."

We cannot forget that the tragedy of the Holocaust brought about the deaths of one and a half million innocent children. While writing this work, the composer constantly asked himself, "What kind of human could do such a thing?" We are reminded of Hannah Arendt's book Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil; it is not the crazed monster that is always the perpetrator, but rather it could be the most normal people that can completely invert human ethics and implicitly accept, and even participate in, the calculated destruction of an entire race. This composer could not let these unknown faces, that were extinguished before they could flourish, be forgotten.

The "Psalm No. 1 for String Orchestra" honors the Days of Remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust, an annual 8-day period designated by the Unites States of Congress for civic commemorations and special educational programs that help citizens remember and draw lessons from the Holocaust. This year Holocaust Remembrance week is from April 27-May 4, 2014.
