Treasures of Sephardic Song traces the surprising and exotic musical synergies between Christians, Arabs and Jews from Medieval Spain to the present. Secular and liturgical songs from Ancient Persia, Spain, Greece, Portugal, Turkey, Morocco, Egypt, The Balkans and Syria will tell a rich musical story and promote the cause of cross-cultural appreciation and understanding. The Gerard Edery Ensemble interprets the ancient repertoire as a living legacy, combining stylistic authority with an immense creative and re-creative flair. From joyous hymns of celebration to poignant ballads of loss, from flamenco-inspired pieces to holy works of praise, the Ensemble’s instrumental virtuosity and masterful arrangements create an unforgettable musical experience.
Edery has assembled what is probably the strongest ensemble of musicians in his lengthy and highly productive career.
