ZIKHARON: SONGMAKERS AUSTRALIA IN RECITAL

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We at Songmakers Australia are very committed to the development of young singers and pianists in our line of interest, Art song and we appreciate the opportunity to pass on the narrative and the stories of our songs to the LIMMUD NZ audience. This programme, called Zikharon (remembering) focuses on the oeuvre of Jewish composers from the Holocaust. Unknown, forgotten or “degenerate” these composers pluck the strings of our collective memory and speak directly to our hearts. To compliment the emotional load the programme also includes songs by famous European composers (Liszt, Ravel) who have either elaborated Jewish melodies or complete the intellectual message of the programme.
