Open Secret: The Jewish Sound in Soviet Music

Sidney Krum Young Artists Concert Series

SUNDAY, MAY 4, 2014 | 3pm

CONCERT & LECTURE

Before World War II, the Soviet Union was the only country in the world to officially promote Jewish music. After World War II, Soviet authorities declared that Jewish music did not exist. Yet all along, major Soviet composers found deep inspiration in the sounds of Ashkenazi music. How did these composers manage to weave Jewish themes into some of the most stirring music of postwar Soviet society? Join us for a blended lecture-concert, with Professor James Loeffler, Yuval Waldman and the artists of the Krum Concert Series. Read more…

The Sidney Krum Young Artists Concert Series is made possible by a generous gift from the Estate of Sidney Krum. Additional support provided by the Jewish Community Youth Foundation of Princeton, NJ.
