Produktbeskrivelse

Throughout the centuries, from its first pictorial representation in a
Bohemian devotional book in 1494 until the present day, the synagogue organ
has been regarded as an unusual phenomenon. Although the use of keyboard
instruments for the accompaniment of the Jewish liturgy in Europe can be
traced back to the beginnings of the Early Modern period, a more
distinctive solo repertoire for them did not come about until they more
frequently began to appear in synagogues during the late nineteenth and
twentieth centuries, in conjunction with contemporary religious, cultural,
and musical developments within the Jewish Diaspora in Central Europe. The
works selected for this CD reflect the history of this organ repertoire
from Central Europe, parts of Eastern Europe, and the United States, where
many composers sought refuge in order to escape persecution from the
National Socialists. On our recording the works are presented in
chronological order and offer insights into the most important stylistic
developments in this organ repertoire. Stephan Lutermann interprets these
works by composers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries on the organ
in the Verden Cathedral. Assaf Levitin, who was trained as an opera singer
and currently serves as the cantor of the Liberal Jewish Community in
Hanover, interprets the Jewish songs belonging to the particular organ
works.
