Old & New: Sephardic Reflections

Early and contemporary music will be presented from the Jewish Sephardic tradition by fivebyfive and Pegasus Early Music/NYS Baroque.

Sephardic music has its roots in the musical traditions of the Jewish communities in medieval Spain and Portugal. The two ensembles, fivebyfive and Pegasus Early Music, will treat audiences to “old” and “new” versions of Sephardic tunes, with artist Lynne Feldman presenting original tapestries celebrating Jewish life shared as part of the performance.

Music by fivebyfive includes a new arrangement of Brazilian composer Clarice Assad’s Sephardic Suite, and a new setting of three Sephardic songs by Eastman graduate Keane Southard. Music from Pegasus will include some of these tunes as well as Scalerica de oro, Morena me llaman, and more.
