Join us for Musical Midrash, as Marty takes us through an examination of various Jewish composers and songwriters and their works, centered on specific themes.
“Text as Lyrics”
Today’s session will examine references to Hebrew texts and liturgy in music. In addition to Dylan, Cohen, Newman and Spektor, we’ll include modern composers Leonard Bernstein and Steve Reich, and subjects like the Akedah – the binding of Isaac – in unusual places.
