Anthony (Mordechai-Tzvi) Russell's "Convergence" with Veretski Pass
The world premiere of operatic bass Anthony Mordechai-Tzvi Russell's multi-media show combines diverse strains of traditional Jewish and African-American music at points of spiritual, melodic and textual convergence. In collaboration with acclaimed Bay Area klezmer trio Veretski Pass, Russell creates a new repertoire of works exploring exile, spirituality, hope and redemption. The performance is enhanced by the animation work of San Francisco-based artist Meredith Leich.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Russell has worked primarily in the field of opera in San Francisco and New York for the past 15 years. Recently he has devoted himself to the recital repertoire of Sidor Belarsky (1898-1975), one of the 20th century's most prolific performers of cantorial music, Chasidic nigunim and Yiddish art song.  Russell's development of Belarsky's repertoire has brought him to the stages of the JCC in Manhattan, Symphony Space, the Ashkenaz Festival in Toronto, KlezKanada and the Montreal Jewish Music Festival.

Veretski Pass takes its name from the mountain pass through which Magyar tribes crossed into the land that became the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The band's unique and exciting combination of virtuosic musicianship and raw energy has excited concertgoers across the world. The trio  Cookie Segelstein on fiddle, Joshua Horowitz on button accordion and tsimbolon, and Stuart Brotman on cello and percussion  plays old country music with origins in the Ottoman Empire. Veretski Pass recently performed at the Concertgebouw Concert Hall in Amsterdam, and its CDs have repeatedly been on the 10-best recording lists of journalists.
