About the Jewish Recital

The songs are based on Jewish texts, which are set to music by classic composers. They consist of love songs, songs of longing, dreams about Jerusalem, the Messiah, songs in remembrance of the Shoah...Composers of name and fame as well as relatively unknown composers of our time are inspired by the age-old poets of the Jewish people.
The recital has been performed in synagogues in Holland, for the Jewish community of Curaçao, and in a concert hall in Israel. It has also been recorded by the Dutch radio and emitted in the week of remembrance of World War II.

It is a program for happy and solemn occasions, as in Judaism both sides of life are part of the One and only God.
