Performing the Jewish archive: Jewish choral music


Friday 25 November | 13.00–14.00

Germany to Australia; Russia to South Africa and Finland; Austria to Britain. These are just some of the journeys taken by Jewish composers in the years immediately preceding the Second World War: journeys of hope for a new start in a foreign land and journeys of fear for the future and the consequences of staying at home. Drawing on the work of researchers from the international project Performing the Jewish Archive, this concert charts the fate of four musicians and their music as they flee the impending horrors of the Nazi regime, using synagogue music, concert anthems and Yiddish folksongs.
