A very personal journey through the beloved city of Paris through the music of Claude Debussy (“Clair de Lune,” Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune …) and how this music shaped a whole new world of color in sound. This new world of “musical impressionism” gave us the beginnings of what we have come to know as “Movie Music.”

BEFORE FIDDLER – WORLD PREMIERE | FEBRUARY 7, 2021 | 7 PM

Before the beloved musical Fiddler on the Roof there was Sholem Aleichem and his beloved character of ‘Tevye the Milkman.’ Before the beloved songs, “Tradition,” “If I were a Rich Man,” “Matchmaker” and more, there was music of the old world… a music that imitated talking, laughing, weeping, and singing, where musicians didn’t just make music, they spoke to you in song – Klezmer. In Florence, Italy, one of the oldest artistic centers in the world, a group of such musicians have been by day, virtuosos in Florence’s world famous Maggio Musicale symphony orchestra, by night, they are the Klezmerata Fiorentina…with their ancient European roots, and Hershey Felder as their storyteller, playing an array of characters and music from the “old world,” from a Tevyeh, to a Yenteh, to a Rabbi, to a newlywed daughter, to many many more…
