Pro Musica Hebraica’s seventh season opens with a Hanukkah-time performance, The Voice of the Clarinet in Jewish Classical Music on Sunday, December 1 at 7:30 pm in the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater. The concert highlights the rich legacy of the clarinet in Jewish art music with a performance by clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein together with violinists Erin Keefe and Arnaud Sussmann, violist Cindy Wu, cellist Nicholas Canellakis, and pianist Timothy Lovelace. This concert features newly recovered compositions by many of the great Russian Jewish composers of the early 20th century, including Joel Engel and Jacob Weinberg, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Samuel Gardiner, new works by acclaimed contemporary composers Ronn Yedidia and Lev Zhurbin, and features newly recovered manuscripts from legendary Russian Jewish clarinetist Simeon Bellison's own archive.
