... Designed as a musical response to one of the best-known classics of cello repertoire, the early-20th-century Schelomo by Ernst Bloch, Timofeyev Ensemble's Shloyme brings together the post-Romantic aesthetics with the bitter-sweet beauty of the Yiddish folklore. The main focus of the project is the inner world of an imaginary hero Shloyme, a Jew who was born in a Ukrainian shteytl and who survived all the major calamities of the 20th century: the pogroms, October Revolution, Civil War, Stalin's Gulag, and World War II.
