A concert on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Jewish Ghetto in Venice 2016
Jewish composers of classical music who live in the ghetto and work at the courts of the high nobility? Christian composers who write liturgical Jewish music, inspired by the rich musical heritage they hear in the synagogues? Everything is possible in Venice and other important cultural centers of 16th and 17th century Italy. ‘Music without borders’ brings back to life the fascinating musical transfer between the Ghetto and the city of Venice.
