The Emanuel Synagogue, 160 Mohegan Drive, West Hartford, CT
Professor Walter Zev Feldman will be accompanied by master accordionist, Christina Crowder
Since the 1990s, the so called “klezmer music” became immensely popular both among Jews and non-Jews. Emerging in 16th century Prague, and spreading throughout the broad territory of the Eastern Ashkenazim, the Jewish musical guild-member, the klezmer (pl. klezmorim) shaped this unique musical and choreographic repertoire.
This lecture, with the use of musical examples and demonstration in dance, will discuss why the knowledge of its history and aesthetics is crucial to the understanding of the culture of the Jews.
Walter Zev Feldman is a leading researcher in both Ottoman Turkish and Jewish music. He is currently a Senior Research Fellow at NYU in Abu Dhabi.
This event is co-sponsored by the Jewish Hartford European Roots Project, the Emanuel Synagogue Adult Education & the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford (JHSGH)
