Benjy Fox-Rosen CD Release, NYC, 15 Jan 2014

Benjy Fox-Rosen CD Release Party

January 15, 2014, 7 pm
YIVO Institute for Jewish Research
15 W. 16th Street,

Tickets $15 general, $10 YIVO members, students, and seniors.

Benjy Fox-Rosen and his ensemble perform the long-awaited Two Worlds/Tsvey Veltn, a stunning new song cycle based on the poetry of master Yiddish poet, Mordechai Gebirtig. Combining traditional and new music, Yiddish folk, theatre and cabaret music, Fox-Rosen interprets Gebirtig's poetry and searing depictions of Poland before and during World War Two with striking insight and brilliance.

This young composer's new work should not be missed.
