Classical, Jazz, and Klezmer clarinetist Paul Green will trace the development of Jewish Art Music from biblical times to the present day, and describe what makes music “Jewish.” Historical events, such as the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, will be discussed insofar as they have affected and influenced Jewish music. The lecture/performance will include examples of Jewish renaissance music, classical and romantic music, the Society for Jewish Folk Music in Russia in the early 20th century, and contemporary works. Live and recorded musical examples will be presented.
