        In this performance, four musicians approach Shostakovich’ song cycle From Jewish Folk Poetry from an angle as unusual as self-evident: from the Yiddish poetry the pieces originate in. Sára Gutvill, a singer of both classical repertoire and Yiddish songs, was intrigued by the claim that the songs were meant to be singable in Yiddish and decided to give it a try.

        The result of this project is a program with Shostakovich’ song cycle in the centre, surrounded by “traditional” settings of the Yiddish poems as well as compositions by Maurice Ravel, Darius Milhaud and Viktor Ullmann.
