Frank London / Ghetto Songs at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg
uploaded this event on June 15, 2018
The world’s first ghetto came into being 500 years ago in Venice. Other cities already had their Jewish quarters, but only in Venice was there a town-within-a-town, surrounded by a wall and gates. For the inhabitants, this meant both protection and a lack of freedom. New York-based klezmer musician Frank London has studied the specific music that grew up in cultural isolation, and has designed a programme that combines Venetian gondola songs, synagogue music, medieval Italian poetry, Biblical texts and political songs.
