German Consulate General Toronto: May 4, 2021: Liberation 75 - Opening Night Concert of Tehorah טהורה
“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 and produced by the German Consulate General in Toronto, this is the Canadian Premiere of Tehorah.
