Join us in the discovery of "Jewish art music," a movement that originated at the end of the 19th century in Russia.

This recital will feature rarely performed works by composers of the early 20th century, most notably Joseph Achron, Alexander Krein and Solomon Rosowsky. These composers established a unique genre that blended traditional Jewish folk and liturgical music with Western European and Russian Romantic styles.
