Late Night: A Klezmer evening

Late Night Konzert

Philharmonie »Late Night«

This Late Night is a tribute to Jewish music – both traditional and modern. Our first concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley has been a connoisseur and lover of klezmer music since childhood. His composition Fidl-Fantazye, a klezmer concerto for violin and chamber orchestra, reveals all the magic of this musical style. Ödön Pártos – whose Yizkor for viola is performed by first principal violist Amihai Grosz – and Samuel Adler emigrated in the 1930s to Palestine and the USA respectively, where they soon became among the leading composers of their time. In their music, they combine stylistic features of the avant-garde with Jewish-Oriental folk music.
