Pre-Performance talk at 6:30pm
In 1938, on Kristallnacht, in Berlin, the entire archive and storehouse of an important repository of Jewish records and music was destroyed. Believing that this music must still exist somewhere in the form of sheet music and records sold to patrons, German musicologist Dr. Rainer E. Lotz has made it his life’s work to seek out these many rare examples of Jewish music produced by Semer Records. An all-star cast of musicians from Europe and the United States has formed the Semer Ensemble to bring this recovered music to the public for the first time. The often dramatic, emotional songs range from klezmer, to cabaret, to prayer music. Led by the great Alan Bern (Brave Old World) and including Yiddish vocalist Lorin Sklamberg (Klezmatics), Daniel Kahn (The Painted Bird,) and more, this is an astonishing evening of the Golden Age of Jewish Music that was almost lost to history and violence.
