Salamone Rossi: Jewish Musician of the Renaissance

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

At the turn of the seventeenth century the Italian composer Salamone Rossi became the first Jew to compose and publish a collection of choral music for the synagogue. His music was published just 400 years ago, in October of 1622. We will investigate the fascinating Jewish community in Renaissance Italy, worldly yet devout, that spawned this phenomenon. We will watch performances of Rossi’s extraordinary music and compare it with both traditional synagogue music of his time and place, and the secular and sacred music of Christian Italy.
