Choral Concert in the Jewish and Christian traditions "Psalms"
The first CD produced by AMJ - the Friends of Jewish Music - is the live recording from the remarkable concert given on March 11th 2001 at the Geneva Conservatory, Switzerland. It brings you:
the choir of the Russian Orthodox Church, dir. A. Diakoff
These three choirs, representing the Jewish and Christian traditions, interpret each their own repertoire, but also twice join together to perform works by Salomone Rossi. The programme includes great liturgical works from the jewish and christian traditions, and compositions from Salomone Rossi; George Malcolm; Zoltán Kodály; Bernard Reichel; Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.
A deeply moving occasion, where the spirit of tolerance and spiritual communion are transmuted into music.
