The concert “Tehorah” was our musical contribution to the opening of Liberation75 last month. If you missed the beautiful musical performance, watch it again...
“Tehorah”, which means “pure” in Hebrew, is a heartbreaking, promising musical story about war, loss, hope, love and forgiveness and sung in German, Yiddish and Hebrew. Composed and written exclusively by Jewish composers and lyricists, this concert is a musical voyage that starts with the thriving Jewish culture of 1920s Berlin during the Weimar Republic, and ends with music from the Promised Land - Israel.
Performed by Adrienne Haan (Musical Direction and Script); Heinz Walter Florin (grand piano); and the Diplomatic String Quartet Berlin: Matthias Hummel (1st violin); Dr. Felix Klein (2nd violin); Ernst Herzog (viola); Ariane Spiegel (cello). Filmed at the Chamber Music Hall of the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, Germany, this recording is the Canadian premiere of Tehorah.
