The first edition of the gala concert from the European Institute of Jewish Music was given November 8, 2015 in Adyar Theater in Paris, in front of an enthusiastic audience of 350 people.

In the first part of the concert we heard Martine Bailly, (cello), Philippe Cuper (clarinet), Yun-Yang Lee (piano), Florin Szigeti (violin) and Ralph Szigeti (alto) perform works from the classical repertoire, such asthe Feuillet d’album for piano, Andante religioso for cello and piano and the 1st movement of the Sonate for piano and violin by Fernand Halphen, the 2nd Suite Sefardie for piano and alto by Alberto Hemsi (french creation), the Petite suite klezmer for clarinet and piano by Serge Kaufmann and the beautiful Nocturne Ville d’Avrayen for piano, violin, alto and cello by George Enescu (world creation in its original version).

The second part was dedicated to the popular folkloric Jewish music. The singer Keren Esther and guitarist Narciso Saúl gave us the opportunity to discover a repertoire of judeo-spanish songs, and more precisely, judeo-moroccan.Then Yerushe, formed by Eléonore Biezunski (voice and violin), Stephen Harrison (double bass), Michel Schick (clarinet) et Piotr Odrekhivskyy (accordion), let us hear with deep feelings of a repertoire of unheard Yiddish songs, saved from oblivion by great collectors such as Ruth Rubin (1906-2000), Moïshe Beregovski (1892-1961) and Zusman Kisselgof (1878-1939).
