Time & Location
About the Event
Says Haan, "I created this program to share a sense of love, hope and forgiveness of the tragic experiences of war and loss. It is my hope that Tehorah, which means "pure" in Hebrew, will help build musical bridges and sincere understanding." The concert features music of 1920s Weimar Berlin, Yiddish klezmer and contemporary Hebrew songs, arranged by German music director Heinz Walter Florin for Haan, piano and string quartet. The program includes works by Kurt Weill/Bertolt Brecht, Mischa Spoliansky, Kurt Schwachbach, Friedrich Hollaender, Norbert Schulze, Chava Alberstein, The Klezmatics, Sasha Argov, Moti Hamer and Naomi Shemer. Ms. Haan will perform in German, Yiddish and Hebrew accompanied by Heinz-Walter Florin on piano and Israeli violinists Netanel Draiblate and Perry Tal, violist Shmuel Katz and cellist Yoni Draiblate. An encore performance of Tehorah will be presented by the Embassy Series at the Embassy of Austria in Washington, DC on November 3rd.
