“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.
