Celestial Dialogues: The Essence of Jewish Music from a Composer’s Perspective (Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music Lecture Series)

May
24

Israeli-American composer and teacher Ofer Ben-Amots will explain his creative approach in dealing with the complexity of this subject, while playing several examples of his music including Celestial Dialogues, The Klezmer Concerto, Concertino for Clarinet, Mandolin, and Orchestra, as well as his chamber opera The Dybbuk. He argues, “from whichever viewpoint we wish to examine Jewish music, we always come back to its role in transforming the mundane into the spiritual.”
