Creative Imagination as a Music Reconstruction Method
Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)
How can we make music from Holocaust survivor testimonies? How can a classic Yiddish opera be resurrected nearly 150 years after it was written? How can historical sources be used to reinvent classic Eastern European Jewish instrumental music?
Join renowned composer, scholar, musician and educator Dr. D. Zisl Slepovitch for a fascinating discussion of these topics and more.
8pm Israel time / 6pm London time / 1pm Eastern
Dr. Slepovitch will discuss projects he has overseen in recent years, including: Songs from Testimonies – the music project of the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale University (since 2018); The Sorceress (Di Kishefmakherin) – Avram Goldfaden’s operetta production by the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (2017–2019), and Litvakus klezmer ensemble – reinventing Litvak Jewish instrumental music based on existing sources.
