I began writing this piece in November, 1988, on the 50th anniversary of the Kristallnacht, the infamous "Crystal Night" of 1938, which marked the official beginning of the Nazi persecution of the Jewish people. My piece is a reflection on that vanished part of Jewish tradition which so strongly colors, by its absence, the culture of our time. --Frederic Rzewski (January 1992)
