Well-loved works for the cello – Ernest Bloch’s Prayer and Schelomo as well as Max Bruch’s Kol Nidrei –feature in this event exploring the idiomatic language of Hebraic composers and those inspired by Hebraic themes, for whom the cello was a uniquely expressive voice—soulful, intense and deeply resonant.
Lesser known but equally beautiful works by Ben-Haim and Stutchewsky will be included, affording the chance to make discoveries in this rich vein of music, and to learn about the expressive gestures that reveal the underlying meaning.
We welcome all cello lovers to this event, as well as teachers who frequently include these works in their classes and concerts.
