The Hourglass, a musical journey through the Jewish soul

Concert organised by the EIJM and 3rd quarter of Paris’ Townhall, as part of the Festival of Jewish Cultures, on June 21st 2018, 6 PM, with Virginie Constant (cello) and Simon Zaoui (piano)

Performed by the cellist Virginie Constant and the pianist Simon Zaoui, this concert will feature musical works written in the first half of the 20th century by composers in search of a Jewish musical identity, such as Ernest Bloch, Lazare Saminsky or even Joseph Achron. Some of them, such as Gideon Klein tragically died during the Holocaust. Others, such as Mieczyslaw Weinberg or Serge Kaufmann, perpetuate their heritage.

Like a houglass in which the Time of History runs and from which we would be the grains of sand, this concert aims to make us travel through the Jewish soul by its music
