Zamir Goes Baroque!

In the intimate environment of Brandeis University’s Slosberg Concert Hall, Zamir and friends explore rarely heard Jewish polyphony from the 17th and early 18th centuries: synagogue motets (and a few love songs) by Salamone Rossi Hebreo of Mantua, Cantata ebraica by Carlo Grossi of Venice, Louis Saladin’s Canticum Hebraicum written for the Provençal Jewish community, excerpts from Giuseppe Lidarti’s oratorio Ester composed in Hebrew for the Jewish community in Amsterdam, and more. This music is not only fascinating historically, it is beautiful and delightful! Zamir will be joined by an awesome instrumental ensemble, led by renowned violinist Daniel Stepner.
