Concert Hebrew melodies for cello and piano

Wednesday February 9, 2022, 7pm

Musée d’Art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme


A concert of the EIJM, in partnership with the MAHJ,

supported by the Fondation Henriette Halphen

under the aegis of the Fondation du Judaïsme Français





On the occasion of the release of the CD Hebrew melodies for cello and piano, vol.2 published by the EIJM’s publishing house, the European Institute of Jewish Music and the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme invite you to a special concert performed by Sarah Iancu, solo cellist in the National Orchestra of the Capitole of Toulouse, and the virtuoso pianist David Bismuth.

These artists will make us discover a musical repertoire inspired by liturgical music, Chassidic tunes, Yiddish and Judeo-Spanish songs, with works by Ernest Bloch, Maurice Ravel, Darius Milhaud, Fernand Halphen, Vladimir Dyck, Victor Ullmann, Abraham Goldfaden, Jack Yellen, and Joaquin Nin-Culmell.

A part of this concert will also highlight the composers of the « New Jewish School » from Saint Petersburg – such as Lazare Saminsky, Jacob Weinberg or Leo Zeitlin – who, under the influence of the Russian folklorist movement at the turn of the 20th century, worked on the creation of a National Jewish music.
