The holding of Alberto Hemsi

One of the biggest collection of Judeo-Spanish music !

In July 2004, Mme Myriam Capuletto Hemsi, widow of the collector and composer Alberto Hemsi, donated her husband’s archives. Sheet music, CD’s, press clippings and pictures are gathered in this collection.

You can now search these archives in our catalogue (search Hemsi’s archives) or with an appointment at the European Institute for Jewish Music. (contact@iemj.org)
