The rock music quartet rereads a sample of the huge part of our culture that would not have come to light if the Holocaust design had come to fruition. The project of the Auditorium Band, one of the Auditorium's resident orchestras produced by the Fondazione Musica per Roma already in its title "Lechaim," meaning "to Life," wants to celebrate the anniversary with a concert that moves on different narrative planes. The first is that of songs, by authors of Jewish and non-Jewish extraction, most closely related to the Shoah: Dylan, Cohen, Guccini , Battiato, Joy Division, but also Hannah Senesh, a young war heroine author of poignant verse, or the striking country blues version that Mark Rubin makes such classics as "Es Brent" and "It's Burning" a testament to a cosmopolitan culture that knows how to hybridize and survive in all conditions. The second plan is the persecution of all minorities; and here we find De André and The Indigo Girls among others. It is the third plan that gives a new nuance to our intentions: to remember the Nazi horror so that it will never happen again and to celebrate its failure by including in the concert great artists, Jewish by birth, who are a founding part of contemporary culture, such as Paul Simon, Gene Simmons of Kiss, Bestie Boys, David Lee Roth, Amy Winehouse, Donald Fagen, Billy Joel, Joey Ramone, Robbie Krieger of the Doors.
