Singing La Victoire

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

MUSIQUES JUIVES D’HIER ET D’AUJOURD’HUI - MARDI 6 JUIN 2017, JUDAÏQUES FM (94.8), 21H05

The temple of la Victoire was inaugurated on Septembre 9th 1874, after being built during 7 years. Situated on the 44 of la Victoire’s street, in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, this impressive building that can welcome 1800 worshippers became in a few years the symbol of a French Judaism acknowledged and integrated.

As soon as 1870, the rabbinical authority pays a special attention to the music that will be played there. With an imposing choir, two organs and cantors with powerful voices, the music becomes an essential part in the French Jewish cult, in which la Victoire is the banner.

With the publishing of a monumental book dedicated to the synagogue of la Victoire, this radio show recalls the great musical figures that marked the history of this synagogue, and of French judaism more generally.

Jacques Canet, president of the synagogue, and his chief conductor Jean-Marc Thoron, will bring precisions and details about the musical practice in use in la Victoire. In particular will be told the names of the main cantors, chief conductors, music directors and composers. We will hear the moving voices of Shalom Berlinski, Adolphe Attia, Emile Kaçman, Aron Hayoun, and works from Jacques Fromental Halévy, Samuel David, Jules Franck and Léon Algazi.

A captivating music program for everyone.
