Jewish Songs at an Exhibition: Sharon Bernstein and Stu Brotman
Yiddish singer Sharon Bernstein (voice & piano), klezmer pioneer Stu Brotman (bass, tsimbl & percussion) and jazz mainstay Sheldon Brown (reeds) join forces in a unique performance set to paintings by self-taught Toronto artist Mayer Kirshenblatt. Kirshenblatt's vibrant portraits of his home town Apt, Poland before the Holocaust inspire a rich blend of traditional song and contemporary sound. Projected images of the paintings connected with the songs complete this experience that recalls Polish shtetl life. Presented in conjunction with the book They Called me Mayer July: Painted Memories of Jewish Life in Poland Before the Holocaust by Mayer Kirshenblatt and Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett (University of California Press, forthcoming September 2007) and exhibition with the same title at the Judah L. Magnes Museum, Septermber 10, 2007 - January 13, 2008.
