Carmina Slovenica: Tehilim

Concert of Jewish music inspired by Haggadah

20. 3. 2014, at 19.30

The importance of music in the life of the Jewish people is found almost at the beginning of the Genesis. Musicians are mentioned among the three fundamental professions. Music was viewed as a necessity in everyday life, as a beautifying and enriching complement of human existence.

Jewish music has evolved throughout the long course of history. In some instances, Jewish music is of a religious nature, spiritual songs and refrains are common in Jewish services throughout the world, while at other times it is of a secular nature. The rhythm and sound of Jewish music varies greatly depending on the origins of the Jewish composer and the time in which the piece was composed. The project “Tehilim”, performed by the choir Carmina Slovenica, is adequately as heterogeneous as the Jewish music. The concert programme consists of compositions by Eran Dinur, Salomon Rossi, Boaz Avni, Galia and Michael Meltzer, Yoni Rechter, Ofra Haza, Meir Ben-Uri, Flory Jagoda, and Joshua Jacobson as well as songs from the rich Sephardic tradition. Conductor is Karmina Šilec.
