“…as playful in spirit as the festival of Purim” -San Francisco Classical Voice

Saturday, November 16, 2013
Town Hall Seattle, 8:00 p.m.

In Jewish communities, fully experiencing every stage of life is considered no less important than prayers, respecting the Sabbath, observing holidays or following dietary and behavioral rules. Reflecting this, a large amount of “party music” survives: songs celebrating life, humorous poems, women’s gatherings, transitions, and joyful moments of the liturgical year. With a wide array of instruments, including recorders, pipe and tabor, dulcian, lute, colascione, viola da mano, percussion, hammer dulcimer, and Renaissance guitar, the virtuosi of Italy’s premier ensemble for medieval and Renaissance music keep the party going – “to life, l’Chaim!”
