    BEYLE 100: Celebrating a Century of the Yiddish Songs, Poetry & Artistic Vision of Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman

    Song text translations:

    Join us for a special online concert celebrating the 100th birthday of Yiddish songwriter, poet, and singer Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman (1920-2013). The program, conceived by Binyumen Schaechter, and organized in conjunction with the Center for Traditional Music and Dance, will feature a number of the Yiddish world’s leading contemporary performers who were influenced by Schaechter-Gottesman, including Michael Alpert, Sharon Bernstein, Dovid Braun, Esther Gottesman, Itzik Gottesman, Janet Leuchter, Sasha Lurje, Sarah Myerson, Ethel Raim, Binyumen Schaechter, Reyna Schaechter, Temma Schaechter, Gitl Schaechter-Viswanath, Asya Vaisman Schulman, Lorin Sklamberg, Alicia Svigals, Paula (Perl) Teitelbaum, Theresa Tova, Lucette van den Berg, Arun (Arele) Viswanath, Josh Waletzky, Shifra Whiteman, Hy Wolfe, Janina Wurbs, and the duo of Sveta Kundish & Patrick Farrell. The Yiddish actor Shane Baker will serve as emcee.

    Born in Vienna and raised in Chernovitz (then Romania, now Ukraine), Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman came to New York in 1951, and created an oeuvre of vivid songs and poetry covering a wide range of subjects from subway musicians, to personal reminiscences, to descriptions of street life near her home in the Bronx. Writing in Yiddish, her work uniquely captures universal themes from intimate snapshots, while humanizing the bustle of modern life. She was named a National Heritage Fellow by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2005, and her songs continue to be performed and enjoyed across the globe.

  • Kira Kiralina I-st A part Anton Pann Ensemble & Mahmoud Chouki, Tawfik Belkhdar, Roaa

    43:24

    Spectacolul-concert KIRA KIRALINA a fost susținut de Anton Pann Ensemble și a fost construit în jurul baladei omonime, reiterând, prin intermediul muzicii și al video-proiecției, o ipotetică peregrinare din apele Dunării în cele ale Mediteranei, pe urmele preafrumoasei Kira, din România până în Maroc, trecând prin Bulgaria, Grecia, Turcia, Egipt, Tunisia și Spania.
    Alături de muzicienii români, au fost prezenți pe scenă și trei artiști marocani de marcă: Mahmoud Chouki – chitară și louthar, Tawfik Belkhdar – percuții, Roaa – voce, care au completat exotica poveste. Muzica propusă de artiști este una sincretică ce îmbină jazz-ul cu sonoritățile arhaice specifice fiecărei culturi amintită în spectacol.
    La limita dintre realitate și legendă, povestea tinerei hangițe Kira Kiralina din portul Brăilei străbate timpul, fascinând scriitori, cineaști și muzicieni, deopotrivă prin dramatismul și parfumul oriental ce emană din fiecare scenă istorisită.

    Anton Pann Ensemble is one of the most popular chamber groups in the context of old Romanian music. This fact is not by chance. It is due to the performances of the members both from an interpretative point of view, as well as in the undertaken of these research, the ensemble being founded by the composer, conductor and byzantine music specialist Constantin Raileanu. Thus, it is evident the enthusiastic reaction of the public to the proposal launched by the ensemble Anton Pann, a concert-show based on the Kira Kiralina ballad.
    The premise of the event was to present a musical route of the heroine, starting with the Braila area music, passing through the Mediterranean space music and reaching the area of Morocco at the narrative end of the ballad. Beyond the Balcano-Mediterranean music presented along the way, the public also enjoyed the improvisation moments of the musicians.
    What you will hear tonight is a version of this story--Kira Kiralina. But in order to have the reason to create this wonderful meeting that we were repeating in fact – it happened for the first time last year in Morocco, when we were invited by the French Cultural Institute and together with the musicians you will see tonight we created this project, Kira Kiralina, designed to explore the fertile and colourful sonorities of the rich and fascinating Mediterranean space from Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia and Spain, to Morocco.
    Therefore, what we present this evening is not necessarily the sad story of the Kira that has been kidnapped, it is actually the reason that allowed us this cultural journey from Romania to Morocco.– said Constantin Raileanu, founder of the ensemble Anton Pann, in the opening of the concert.
    Along with the Romanian musicians:
    Constantin Raileanu -vocals, kanun and musical coordinator
    Sabin Penea – violin
    Alexandru Stoica – Oud (short-neck lute)
    Andrei Nitescu – cello
    Issa Garfi – flute/Bansouri/ney
    have completed the exotic story three gifted Moroccan artists :
    Mahmoud Chouki – guitar and louthar
    Tawfik Belkhdar – percussion
    Roaa – Vocals
    The proposed music is syncretic, combining jazz with archaic musicality specific to the cultural spaces through which the ballad takes us. On the verge of reality and legend, the story of the young innkeeper Kira Kiralina from Braila crosses times, fascinating writers, filmmakers and musicians, both by its thrill and by the oriental fragrance emanating from every scene.
    Concert repertoire included musical pieces from the Love Hospital collection, by Anton Pann, and from Romanian, Turkish, Egyptian or Tunisian folklore, as well as musical pieces composed by the members of the ensemble and their guests.
    The most appauded moments were the pieces composed by Mahmoud Chouki, combining North African stylistics with harmonic jazz language.
    Among the main attractions of the evening were the digital animations on the walls of the Radio Hall, exceptionally designed by Oana Benko Raileanu, meant to help the public to visualise certain narrative scenes, which is a novelty in the context of old Romanian music.
    This show is part of the series of exceptional events organized by Anton Pann Ensemble, such artistic initiatives are necessary and, obviously, admirable.
    Computerland Romania has supported as the main sponsor the organization of the show Kira Kiralina on 29 September at the Radio Hall, in the interpretation of the Anton Pann Ensemble .

    EUROPALIA invites Romania for its next festival! After a spectacular edition dedicated to Indonesia (2017), the Biennale is now joining forces with Romania, a country with a fascinating history and a captivating cultural scene.

    The flagship event of EUROPALIA ROMANIA is a grand exhibition about Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th century. It will be the first time in 25 years that a solo exhibition showcases the work of this extraordinarily versatile artist. Opening on October 2, 2019, at BOZAR, Brussels, the exhibition will bring together famous pieces from museums and private collections across the world.

    In terms of music and performing arts, EUROPALIA will explore the country's rich culture and traditions, actively stimulate new partnerships between Belgian, Romanian and international artists, and turn the spotlight on emerging talent. The interdisciplinary and diverse programme will consist of more than 200 events in over 50 locations. We hope to see you there!

  • Saint Saens, Africa Op 89 – George Emmanuel Lazaridis meets MOYSA & MUSIC FOR PEACE

    10:34

    George - Emmanuel Lazaridis herewith performs Saint Saens’ fantasy for piano and orchestra op. 89 “Africa” with the newly established Thessaloniki Megaro Youth Symphony Orchestra “MOYSA” and in collaboration with young members of Istanbul’s “Music For Peace” foundation, under the direction of Zoe Zeniodi.

    This video is an excerpt of MOYSA’s Christmas Concert at the Thessaloniki Concert Hall (Megaro) on December 23, 2015. Forming part of a documentary dedicated to the Orchestra, presented by the Greek National Television on January 1st 2016, this video documents one of the first public performances of MOYSA: a model association of highly talented young Greek musicians, destined to take the country by storm while aiming to represent the best of Greece’s musical youth on the international music scene.

    Cordial thanks to ERT, to the Thessaloniki Concert Hall “Megaro”, to MOYSA, to Music For Peace, to Zoe Zeniodi and to Yannis Stratakis, for kindly allowing the documentation of this excerpt on YouTube.


    You may read more about MOYSA below:


    The Megaro Youth Symphony Orchestra – MOYSA was founded by Thessaloniki Concert Hall in March 2015, by the initiative of pianist and composer George - Emmanuel Lazaridis and with the support of Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

    It is a community of young musicians from Thessaloniki and northern Greece that counts more than 90 members aged 8 to 25 years old. Its mission is to further educate young musicians in orchestral art, to support their artistic development beyond performing excellence alone and, most importantly, to help raise a new generation of “mission-led” artists and audiences who are able to utilise music’s proven potential for social impact.

    MOYSA first performed in collaboration with members of the European Union Youth Orchestra in April 2015, with enormous success. It has since given more than 20 concerts and embarked on multiple educational activities, playing a vital role in rekindling local social coherence and developing a new, engaged audience for symphonic music.

    Today, the orchestra is regularly mentored by the Greek conductor, composer and cellist Theodor Papadimitriou, while it maintains and develops an active network of international mentors and collaborators.

    Within 18 months of operation, MOYSA has already worked with established conductors such as Miltos Logiadis, Zoe Zeniodi, George Vranos, Vladimir Symeonidis, Dariusz Mikulski, Samuel Matus and the Brazilian rising star Yuri Azevedo.

    It has performed with distinguished artists including Vladimir Mendelssohn, George-Emmanuel Lazaridis, Simos Papanas and others. It has also performed with young soloists from Greece, Turkey and Romania and established recurring collaborations with the Thessaloniki State Symphony Orchestra, the City of Thessaloniki Symphony Orchestra, with young musicians from the Romanian Cultural Institute and Istanbul’s “Music for Peace” Foundation, with EUYO alumni etc.

    Amongst its educational activities to date, the Orchestra has been mentored by EUYO musicians and staff, by members of the TSSO and by various established Greek and international artists. Recently, MOYSA inaugurated its own Music Summer School at the Thessaloniki Megaro, a new institution aiming to develop a kaleidoscopic educational system stretching boundaries beyond instrumental performance practice.

    Amongst its social awareness activities, the Orchestra has visited and performed at multicultural and adult second opportunity schools, hospitals and local organizations for socially challenged children. In June 2016, it gave a large scale concert aiming to raise funds for the relief of Refugees in current northern Greece camps, in collaboration with the Municipality of Thessaloniki.

    Recent international collaborations have included side by side performances with the Royal Concertgebouw Philharmonic and with Cameristi del Teatro ala Scala. Immediate future plans include a collaboration with the legendary soprano Barbara Hendricks, performances at the new SNF Cultural Centre in Athens, at Berlin's Young Euro Classic international Festival and much more.

  • Mischa Blanos - Piano Session in D Moll - RKI Berlin

    38:54

    The concept of a Piano Session is a full-length concert of about one hour, performed without any pause between pieces. It is conceived as a whole-body performance and it is a musical experience in itself. One hour if uninterrupted solo piano could be weary, but this piece of music moves from acoustic to electronic sounds, blends tuneful themes with electronic beats and spacey ambient sounds. The show expresses a fine-tuned scale of dynamics, from pianissimo and forte, calmness and frenzy all together. The pianist displays fast finger technique, while the mixture of force and sensibility leaves one speechless.

    It’s hard to pinpoint the musical genre of this Piano Session, as it draws influences from classical music, jazz, electronic music, experimental, ambient. The artist says he’s marching with the new wave of neoclassical pianists of today.

    The performance took place in Berlin at Romanian Institute of Culture in May 2015, using a Steinway grand piano, a Yamaha Synthesizer keyboard, midi keyboard and the pickup Helpinstil wired to Ableton software defining the musician’s unique style.
    The Piano Session in D Moll is an acoustic-electronic performance and original instrumental composition that bears the signature of the artist.

    Live Concert Romanian Cultural Institute in New York 1994

  • Kira Kiralina I-st B part Anton Pann Ensemble & Mahmoud Chouki, Tawfik Belkhdar, Roaa

    42:14

    Spectacolul-concert KIRA KIRALINA a fost susținut de Anton Pann Ensemble și a fost construit în jurul baladei omonime, reiterând, prin intermediul muzicii și al video-proiecției, o ipotetică peregrinare din apele Dunării în cele ale Mediteranei, pe urmele preafrumoasei Kira, din România până în Maroc, trecând prin Bulgaria, Grecia, Turcia, Egipt, Tunisia și Spania.
    Alături de muzicienii români, au fost prezenți pe scenă și trei artiști marocani de marcă: Mahmoud Chouki – chitară și louthar, Tawfik Belkhdar – percuții, Roaa – voce, care au completat exotica poveste. Muzica propusă de artiști este una sincretică ce îmbină jazz-ul cu sonoritățile arhaice specifice fiecărei culturi amintită în spectacol.
    La limita dintre realitate și legendă, povestea tinerei hangițe Kira Kiralina din portul Brăilei străbate timpul, fascinând scriitori, cineaști și muzicieni, deopotrivă prin dramatismul și parfumul oriental ce emană din fiecare scenă istorisită.

    Anton Pann Ensemble is one of the most popular chamber groups in the context of old Romanian music. This fact is not by chance. It is due to the performances of the members both from an interpretative point of view, as well as in the undertaken of these research, the ensemble being founded by the composer, conductor and byzantine music specialist Constantin Raileanu. Thus, it is evident the enthusiastic reaction of the public to the proposal launched by the ensemble Anton Pann, a concert-show based on the Kira Kiralina ballad.
    The premise of the event was to present a musical route of the heroine, starting with the Braila area music, passing through the Mediterranean space music and reaching the area of Morocco at the narrative end of the ballad. Beyond the Balcano-Mediterranean music presented along the way, the public also enjoyed the improvisation moments of the musicians.
    What you will hear tonight is a version of this story--Kira Kiralina. But in order to have the reason to create this wonderful meeting that we were repeating in fact – it happened for the first time last year in Morocco, when we were invited by the French Cultural Institute and together with the musicians you will see tonight we created this project, Kira Kiralina, designed to explore the fertile and colourful sonorities of the rich and fascinating Mediterranean space from Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia and Spain, to Morocco.
    Therefore, what we present this evening is not necessarily the sad story of the Kira that has been kidnapped, it is actually the reason that allowed us this cultural journey from Romania to Morocco.– said Constantin Raileanu, founder of the ensemble Anton Pann, in the opening of the concert.
    Along with the Romanian musicians:
    Constantin Raileanu -vocals, kanun and musical coordinator
    Sabin Penea – violin
    Alexandru Stoica – Oud (short-neck lute)
    Andrei Nitescu – cello
    Issa Garfi – flute/Bansouri/ney
    have completed the exotic story three gifted Moroccan artists :
    Mahmoud Chouki – guitar and louthar
    Tawfik Belkhdar – percussion
    Roaa – Vocals
    The proposed music is syncretic, combining jazz with archaic musicality specific to the cultural spaces through which the ballad takes us. On the verge of reality and legend, the story of the young innkeeper Kira Kiralina from Braila crosses times, fascinating writers, filmmakers and musicians, both by its thrill and by the oriental fragrance emanating from every scene.
    Concert repertoire included musical pieces from the Love Hospital collection, by Anton Pann, and from Romanian, Turkish, Egyptian or Tunisian folklore, as well as musical pieces composed by the members of the ensemble and their guests.
    The most appauded moments were the pieces composed by Mahmoud Chouki, combining North African stylistics with harmonic jazz language.
    Among the main attractions of the evening were the digital animations on the walls of the Radio Hall, exceptionally designed by Oana Benko Raileanu, meant to help the public to visualise certain narrative scenes, which is a novelty in the context of old Romanian music.
    This show is part of the series of exceptional events organized by Anton Pann Ensemble, such artistic initiatives are necessary and, obviously, admirable.
    Computerland Romania has supported as the main sponsor the organization of the show Kira Kiralina on 29 September at the Radio Hall, in the interpretation of the Anton Pann Ensemble .
