A Musical Celebration Of Yiddish Culture
Part of its Migrations: The Making of America citywide festival, the historic Carnegie Hall presents From Shtetl to Stage, a celebration of the influence and legacy that Yiddish culture has had on America's diverse and vibrant musical landscape. A host of iconic Yiddish performers, including violinist Gil Shaham and pianist Evgeny Kissin, come together to showcase an extraordinary tableau of works from the Yiddish traditional folk repertoire, as well as classical music, klezmer and contemporary songs.
Child prodigy turned adult virtuoso superstar Evgeny Kissin is hailed as one of the foremost interpreter of Romantic era works. His compelling playing, characterised by dazzling, fleet fingerwork, a powerful touch and unparalleled passion, often elicits standing ovations from audiences the world over. The celebrated pianist often writes and recites poetry in Yiddish, which he learnt from his maternal grandparents.
