On Jewish Music – I

a musical contribution to 1700 Years of Jewish Life in Germany by Lucian Plessner

“Your lecture on Jewish music is very interesting and your arguments are exactly the same as those that my father once addressed at a symposium in Paris… Thank you also for your musical examples, so well interpreted and some of which I did not know!“

Marianne Tansman (daughter of composer Alexander Tansman)

„…die Videoproduktion „On Jewish Music“ finde (ich) vorzüglich. So unaufwendig, konzentriert, professionell (auch in Kameraführung und Schnitt), für jeden verständlich (zumindest jeden mit passablen Englischkenntnissen), ohne auch Informiertere zu unterfordern, ein sehr großes Thema mit Gelassenheit und auch feinem Witz hier und da beleuchtet – vielen Dank für diese halbe Stunde!

Volker Hagedorn, Bestsellerautor von Bachs Welt,  Der Klang von Paris  und  Flammen

„¡Espléndido y claro. Felicidades!“

Sergio Berlioz, composer Mexico-City

On Jewish Music – II

Alexandre Tansman Cavatina by Lucian Plessner

“I have listened … to your study of my father’s Cavatine and I found myself in complete agreement with your remarks…  I really appreciated your interpretation, very beautiful sound and sense of serenity that I felt in some intimate passages, a scherzino quite new but I approve. Thank you for your work in depth and your right intuitions.“

Marianne Tansman (daughter of composer Alexander Tansman)
