Summertime Klezmer Course w/members of London Klezmer Quartet, Hertfordshire, UK, 5-7 Jun 2017

Summertime Klezmer Course

The London Klezmer Quartet returns for a summertime course designed for instrumentalists (including keyboard players) from all musical backgrounds, classical, folk or jazz. Applicants must be of at least roughly grade 4 level (no formal qualifications needed), and an ability to read music helps, though it’s not essential. The LKQ’s coaching is all about interactive learning. They concentrate on repertoire and attention to melody, accompaniment and ornamentation, and if appropriate will also introduce dance elements to the course. Oral and aural learning methods will help those unfamiliar with it acquaint themselves to the style more quickly - though we hope for many return visitors! Putting music into its historical context is an important part of the course, as is the telling of stories of musicians past and present.

An elegant as well as nostalgic program devoted to treasures of Yiddish song and the poetry that has inspired this musical expression in all its variety of style. Presented in the intimate chamber music setting of a traditional classical Liederabend (song evening) appropriate to the immediacy of this cherished genre, the recital will feature four of its leading interpreters: Ida Rae Cahana, Elizabeth Shammash, Raphael Frieder, and Alberto Mizrahi together with world renowned virtuoso pianist Yehudi Wyner. Offerings will include songs by Lazar Weiner, Moses Milner, Solomon Rosowsky, Solomon Golub, Janot Roskin, Mikhl Gelbart, Mordecai Gebirtig, Joel Engel, and Maurice Rauch, along with artistic settings of some of the most beloved Yiddish folksongs, and capped by melodious echoes of the best of Yiddish theater.

The concept and content of this Yiddish Liederabend has been devised by YIVO’s Anne E. Leibowitz Visiting Professor in Residence in Music, Neil W. Levin, who will deliver the pre-concert lecture on the development of the Yiddish lieder tradition and its literary basis.

This concert explores the legacy of composer Lazare Saminsky. Born in Vale-Gotzulovo, Ukraine in 1882, Saminsky was one of the earliest members of the Society for Jewish Folk Music in St. Petersburg – a group of composers committed to forging a new national style of Jewish classical music infused with Jewish folk melodies and liturgical music. Saminsky immigrated to the United States in 1920 where he co-founded the League of Composers in 1923, and was the music director of Temple Emanu-El from 1924-1958. Saminsky’s oeuvre represents a broad cross section of Jewish music ranging from sacred to secular. His songs set texts in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, and more, and his music takes its inspiration from all around the Jewish world. This concert features some of Saminsky’s greatest compositions alongside composers of his new- and old-world coteries including Joel Engel, Joseph Achron, and Lyubov Streicher. Performances by Emanu-El’s Cantor Mo Glazman as well as Eliza Bagg, Brigid Coleridge, Julian Schwartz, and Marika Bournaki will feature a variety of songs and chamber music with violin, cello, and piano.
