Conductor – Joel Cohen (3). Ensemble – The Boston Camerata.

The Boston Camerata continued to perform the program in various forms in subsequent years. A 2011 reissue on the Warner Classics and Jazz label stripped the packaging of its notes, which included justifications by longtime Boston Camerata conductor Joel Cohen of many of the musical decisions he made. The last part of the album features another alternation, juxtaposing Sephardic religious songs with pieces by Spanish King Alfonso X "El Sabio"; this technique casts the tolerant world of medieval Spain uniquely as a society rooted in ancient musical practices. An interesting release whose interest goes well beyond its purely ecumenical qualities.

In the United States, Joel Cohen is best known as the long-tenured helmsman of the Boston Camerata, and understandably so; but travel east across the Atlantic and you'll find him equally highly regarded as a lutenist, a radio broadcaster, and a produ. The Sacred Bridge: Jews and Christians in Medieval Europe.

The Sacred Bridge is an interfaith celebration unlike any other. Discover with us the common musical roots of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, and the astonishing and beautiful interactions among these traditions. Our program includes elements of Jewish liturgy, Gregorian and Koranic chant, songs and texts of Jewish minstrels, Sephardic folksong, medieval Spanish Cantigas, and Judaeo-Islamic music from the ancient Andalusian tradition. We are joined by Sharq Arabic Music Ensemble. 06/12/19 Songes et Mençonges: Medieval visions and dreams of prophecy, love and folly in Boston, MA at New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall tickets. mor. ranslate this page.

The Boston Camerata’s The Sacred Bridge: Jews, Christians, and Muslims in Medieval Europe’’ production goes back to 1990, but no program that brings together the three Abrahamic faiths will ever be out of date. Saturday at Longy School of Music’s Pickman Hall, the Camerata was joined by Sharq Arabic Music Ensemble for a evening that reminded us how readily Jews, Christians, and Muslims meet in prayer and song and dance. Camerata music director emeritus Joel Cohen was the lighthearted host, reminding the packed house that Jewish entertainers did not start with Groucho Marx and Woody Allen’’ and describing the 13th-century poet Isaac Gorni as a medieval Jewish schlemiel in Provence.

The Sacred Bridge: Jews & Christians in Medieval Europe Boston Camerata - Joel Cohen Erato 45513. Medieval music: non-christian. Medieval Jewish Music. Much of the music you are about to hear was produced in the saddest and most shamefully cruel corners of old Europe - its ghettos. Yet the Jews and Christians, thoughforced to live apart, were in many ways, both large and small, dependent on each other. Our program will attempt to trace some of those ways through the music and poetry of pre-Enlightenment times. In spite of the enforced segregation of the Jews, exchanges with the Gentile world were frequent, continuous, and bilateral.

Exclusively for Prime members. This is the album with which I open my Christmas season.
