"Mirroring the Other: Reflecting Jewish Experience in Medieval Germany"
Dec. 6, 2020
Alkemie's delves into medieval German and Jewish repertoires, heeding the call to grapple with the realities of injustice – and the hope that rises from seeing how resilience can combat iniquity. The program looks at the Jewish experience in medieval Germany through newly-composed settings of medieval Jewish texts and extant monophonic and polyphonic works. Composers featured are Oswald von Wolkenstein, the Monk of Salzburg, Hugo von Montfort and Walther von der Vogelweide; texts will be drawn from Yiddish epic chivalric romance (the "Bovo-bukh") and the Codex Manesse, as well as religious poems and contemporary chronicles.
