Norbert Glanzberg - From popular songs to Jewish music

A radio program of the European Institute for Jewish Music, hosted by Hervé Roten

MUSIQUES JUIVES D’HIER et D’AUJOURD’HUI - TUESDAY 5TH OF JUNE 2012 - JUDAIQUES FM, 21h05

Jewish composer and musician born in Galicia, Norbert Glanzberg fled from Nazi Germany in 1933 to find refuge in France. Accompanier on the piano for variety music stars, he became famous for his movie music and his popular songs, sang in particular by Edith Piaf (Padam Padam, Padam, Mon manège à moi), Yves Montand (Moi j’m’en fous, Les grands boulevards), Henri Salvador and Renée Lebas...

Over 10 years after his death, Glanzberg’s songs are still in all mouths. We know less his classical work written in the 1980’s, such as the Yiddish Suite, the Holocaust Songs and Holocaust Lieders.

Illustrated with a lot of music, this show will allow us to discover the many sides of this composer and virtuoso pianist, of whose the work and life has been marked by the tragic faith of the Jewish people during the dark years of Nazism.

A thrilling musical story told by Serge Glanzberg, the son of Glanzberg .
