As part of the Festival of Jewish Cultures
Proposed by the European Institute of Jewish Music, the Archives Nationales and the D’AC, Direction de l’Action culturelle of the FSJU
Beautifully interpreted by Sarah Iancu on cello and David Bismuth on piano, this concert features the most beautiful Hebrew melodies inspired by liturgical, Hasidic, Yiddish and Judeo-Spanish themes: from Ravel’s famous Kaddish to Max Bruch’s Kol nidrei, from Ernest Bloch’s De la vie juive cycle to Darius Milhaud’s Chants populaires hébraïques, via lesser-known but equally beautiful works by Joseph Achron, Léon Algazi, Charles-Valentin Alkan, Fernand Halphen, Simon Laks, Joaquin Nin-Culmell, Dmitri Schostakovitsch, Joachim Stutschewsky and Viktor Ullmann. The program for this concert follows in the footsteps of these composers, who were inspired by Chassidic, Yiddish and Judeo-Spanish melodies in their search for the very soul of Judaism.
Program to be found in the 1st volume of the “Classiques” collection
published by the EIJM: Hebrew Melodies, for cello and piano, just released.
Concert fee: 10 €
