Rediscovering Joseph Achron

Monday, December 12, 2011
7:30pm until 9:30pm
Location: Conservative Yeshiva (in the Old Beit Midrash), 8 Agron Street, Jerusalem, Israel
Join us for pizza, music, and an exciting discussion on the important but forgotten musical legacy of Joseph Achron (1886-1943), one of the greatest composers of “Jewish Classical Music”, and the efforts of a young organization to bring his works back to the stage.

FROM THE JAWS OF THE LION

FROM THE JAWS OF THE LION
On 25 March, 2007, in the advent of Yom HaShoah veHaG’vurah, the Felicia Blumenthal Music Center in Tel-Aviv will present a concert of art songs by Arie Ben Erez Abrahamson (1904-1992). Composed before his deportation, during his imprisonment in the concentration camps of Vichy France, and after his escape from his captors, the music is set to texts of Yiddish and Hebrew poets such as Sutzkewer, Reisen, Rosenfeld, Kipnis, Bialik, and Tschernchowsky.
