Russian Chamber Arts Society: Legacy of Russian Jewish Composers
Abramson Family Recital Hall, Katzen Arts Center
Tickets: $40 regular admission, $25 AU students

Jewish  musical nationalism in Russia was directly influenced  by a music movement that emerged in the first half of the 19th century that sought  to develop a specifically Russian style of music instead of imitating Western-Eu­ropean style. This national renaissance resulted in the appearance of the Society of Folk Jewish Music in 1908. The society's formation was a turning  point in the modern history of Jewish music and its influence soon spread from Russia to Europe, Palestine and the United  States. Although the society lasted a little  more than a decade, its impact on the formation of a Jewish  national school of music was immense. It organized  concerts, musical lectures and meetings, collected and  preserved a large quantity of Jewish folk songs and published numerous musical compositions.

Featuring Susana Poretsky, mezzo-soprano, Michael Manevich, tenor, Vera Danchenko-Stern, piano, Victor Danchenko, violin, Julian Milkis, clarinet.
