Back to the Sources, Part II: Art Songs from the St. Petersburg Society

Lani Hall View Program

The Lowell Milken Center for Music of American Jewish Experience continues its 2023-24 exploration of the St. Petersburg Society for Jewish Folk Music (1908-1917), a little-known but seminal artistic movement that profoundly influenced the development of Jewish art music in the 20th century.  In November 2023, Part I focused on piano solo and instrumental chamber works. Part II presents exquisite rarities for voice and piano by Society composers Joseph Achron, Mikhail Gnessin, Alexander Krein and Moshe Milner.  Pianist, Milken Center artistic director and UCLA director of orchestral studies Neal Stulberg curates the series and introduces these rarely-performed works from the stage.

Part I also will be presented as Back to the Sources On The Road, Sunday, March 17, 2024, 3:00 PM at Temple Beth Torah in Ventura, CA. You can find more information here.
