This work reflects the preoccupation with death, anxiety, love and transcendence. The meaning of existence in the life of a man. The attempt to walk along familiar paths anew. A sharp, clear and critical look at one’s own religion. The perception of life, neighborly love, friendship, hope, love and sacrifice, when one takes a philosophical journey into the depths of one’s inner self. Guido Mancusi was soprano soloist at the Vienna Boys’ Choir. He graduated from the Vienna Music School and studied afterward at the Vienna Conservatory of Music and at the Wiener Musikhochschule. He has won multiple prizes at international composition competitions. At present, Mancusi serves as the conductor of the Wiener Volksoper, works as a freelance conductor and teaches at a private university for Music and performing arts in Vienna.
