Ceremony for the permanent piece "Ewinger Anklang" installed in Berlin Schöneberg.
The sonic memorial "Ewiger Anklang" honors Siegfried Translateur, a prominent composer, orchestra leader, and music publicist who was a notable figure in Berlin's cultural scene until he was persecuted by the Nazis and deported to KZ Theresienstadt in 1944. The piece consists of a graphic installation of waltz steps at the former location of the Berlin Sportpalast, where Translateur's waltz 'Wiener Praterleben' became famous as the 'Sportpalast Walzer.' A QR code embedded in the graphic allows passersby to access a website with a Hörspiel available in 4 languages and information about the life and music of Siegfried Translateur. More information and the audio composition can be found at The piece was commissioned by the city of Berlin, District Office of Tempelhof-Schöneberg.
