Jewish Sounds of Soviet Russia: Colorado Chamber Players at JAAMM Festival
November 16, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$18 – $20
Jewish and Yiddish music have always found their way into Russian music. The role of Jewish composers in Russia changed dramatically after the rise of Stalin and after World War II. While Jewish music was officially banned (or declared non-existent) after World War II, many composers continued to incorporate Jewish themes into their pieces.
Russian composers Dmitri Shostakovich and Sergei Prokofiev; and Jewish composers Miecyzslaw Weinberg and Mikhail Gnesin all managed to weave Ashkenzi Jewish folk music into their compositions, in spite of anti-semitic repression under Stalin’s rule. This evening’s program explores specific pieces by these composers, with Jewish elements. Colorado Chamber Players musicians offer spoken program notes.
Overture on Hebrew Themes, Sergei Prokofiev
Piano Quintet, op. 11, Requiem, Mikhail Gnessin
3 Pieces for Solo Clarinet, Igor Stravinsky
Excerpt from String Quartet no. 4, op. 83, Dmitri Shostakovich
