Description

The choir work Time is based on the story of the Tower of Babel in the Old Testament, one of the most famous passages in the Bible, where people are building a city with a tower to reach up to heaven. To prevent people from succeeding, God creates all the languages of the world. Time is a metaphor for the challenges of our time, where different languages and cultures meet and the need for conversations across national borders increases, and at the same time timeless as people have always been dependent on communicating with one another.

Mühlrad's work delves into eternal themes such as mortality, holiness, and the essence of human nature, expressing a profound connection to the foundations of the universe through music.
