''Dandelion'' is a concertante work that is still being composed (2014). It's for solo voices, mixed choir and string orchestra in German text.
The main subject of the work is the searching for the dividing line which can transform any man into “hero” or “monster”. The only character of the work is a former German soldier that during the WWII his task was to throw the gas into the gas-chambers. The same person, in the morning was completing his cruel tasks and later the night he was spending his time with his wife and his two young children who loved them so much. Now at the age of 84 his past hunts him and he is trying to answer the questions. The work is an inner pursuit of man with nature, God and his fellow mans. A work about the memory of humanity and its insecure future.
The interviews in the trailer are from the documentary: Auschwitz - Inside the Nazi State
The english translation of the final quote of the trailer is:
“If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?”
- Alexander Solzhenitsyn
