The Anamnesis of Miron Goldenberg, Esq., a short tavern song for baritone and nonet is a piece of music that attempts to portray the condition of Miron Goldenberg, a fictional and mentally unstable opera singer of world renown, on the eve of his nervous breakdown triggered by the unexpected demise of his dazzling career.
The piece was composed on the initiative of Prof. Borislav Čičovački, for FILUM, the chamber ensemble of the Faculty of Philology and the Arts at the University of Kragujevac, whose members, including Prof. Čičovački, premièred the work at the opening of the 6th Nowa Muzyka festival in Bydgoszcz, Poland, in 2018.
