AZ DER REBBE ZINGT (WHEN THE RABBI SINGS)

The Wiener Klezmer Orchester is the only orchestra in the world which is exclusively dedicated to Jewish music. The ensemble has rapidly become an integral part of the Jewish cultural scene in Vienna, and has already notched up numerous guest appearances on the international stage. In this gala matinee concert, the orchestra plays music whose sources range from the Yiddish-speaking shtetlekh of Eastern Europe to the work of contemporary Austrian composers.
The Austrian actress Mercedes Echerer is well known from her countless roles in film and theatre. Here she reads from a programme which has been specifically created for the Yiddish Culture Festival. And its OK to laugh! Pictures by the Bulgarian artist Krassimir Kolev, projected onto the large screen, provide a visual backdrop which complements the mood of the programme.
Special Guest: Bayan virtuoso Alexander Shevchenko.
