The Hourglass - A musical voyage through the Jewish soul

Virginie Constant, cello - Simon Zaoui, piano - With the participation of Katarzyna Alemany, cello

RELEASE OF THE 2nd CD FROM THE COLLECTION CLASSICS.


Driven by Virginie Constant, talented cellist, supported by Simon Zaoui on the piano and Katarzyna Alemany on the cello, this disc gathers works written in the first half of the 20th century by composers in search of a Jewish musical identity, be it Ernest Bloch, Lazare Saminsky or Joseph Achron. Some of them, such as Gideon Klein were tragically killed during the Holocaust. Others, such as Mieczyslaw Weinberg or Serge Kaufmann, perpetuate their memory.
Like the hourglass in which runs the Time of History, and where we would be the grains of sand, this disc has the ambition of making us travel through the meanders of the Jewish soul in its most universal aspect: its music !
