Feinsmith Quartet, WJMF, Washington, DC, 9 Jun 2009

The Washington Jewish Music Festival - 6/4-6/11

Feinsmith Quartet
Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater, Washington DCJCC
1529 16th Street NW
Washington, DC 20036
June 9, 7:30 pm

Composer Daniel David Feinsmith constructs his original classical compositions using the gematria (numerology) of Jewish holy texts, including the Tanakh and ancient Kabbalistic writings, turning the written word into beautiful and astonishing arrangements. The music crosses the boundaries of tradition, evoking the exhilaration of mystical Judaism and interpreting the words of Torah anew. Each member of Feinsmith Quartet—cellist Jennifer Culp, bassist Michael Manring, classical guitarist Gyan Riley and pianist Christopher Taylor—has received critical acclaim for their unique talents.
