Renaissance of Traditional Jewish Music
Jewish communities over the centuries have developed a treasure trove of beautiful music, unique to the Jewish experience. But the vagaries of Jewish history, with its dispersal and upheavals, have threatened this precious heritage with extinction.
Our “Jewish Music Renaissance” project strives to rescue and bring back to life the music of Jewish communities of yore. Some pieces, dating from pre-Holocaust Europe and Arab countries, have long been neglected and all but forgotten. We research, record and perform traditional pieces including forgotten Jewish folk music, ethnic songs, and Hassidic nigunim, from all ethnic and religious streams of Judaism. Now, rediscovered, Ron Shulamit’s Zmora orchestra is having many of these pieces arranged anew and recorded for posterity. One example is “Seven Voices,” by Israel Edelson, a special arrangement for our girl’s choir and chamber orchestra. This piece is based on inspiring and moving tunes dating back to the disciples of the Rabbi from Berdichev. The Orchestra then adds these pieces to their performance repertoire, thus making them available for a new generation of listeners.
The Jewish Music Renaissance program sponsored the recording of “One Thing Have I Asked”, a CD featuring Jewish melodies and nigunim, arranged for a recorder ensemble by Keren Ben-Nun and performed by the Melzer Consort; published a musical workbook, “Songs and Nigunim in New Clothes” for recorder quartets; and the Accordi-Ron Orchestra recorded “Rhythms of Shulamit”, a CD with traditional Jewish tunes, some in modern arrangement by I. Edelson.
This year we released a new CD in conjunction with Hebrew University- “Or Zarua”. A new cantorial music cd by Andre Hajdu. Asher Ainovich – Vocals, Andre Hajdu – Piano
