Aires de Sefarad
Aires de Sefarad, performed by Duo46. Born in Argentina, trained in Israel and the US, the now Berkeley-based composer Jorge Liderman brings a highly original twist to Sephardic music with Duo46, two maverick players of violin and guitar in this work commissioned in part by the Guggenheim Foundation. The double bill includes Avi Avital, an Israeli mandolin master who recently won first prize of the international competition for plucked strings "Citta di Voghera" (Italy); and has played solo with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra of Milano and others. (Please see separate listing for Avi Avital.)

Jorge Liderman received his doctorate in composition from the University of Chicago and in 1989, joined the Composition faculty at UC Berkeley. Liderman's works have been commissioned and performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Tanglewood Orchestra, the New Century Chamber Orchestra, and the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, among others, as well as by artists such as Oliver Knussen, Esa Pekka Salonen, David Tanenbaum, Carla Kihlstedt, and Gloria Cheng. His opera Antigona Furiosa was filmed by German TV in 1992 and received the BMW International Music Theater Prize for that year in conjunction with the Third Munich Biennale. That same year Liderman was awarded the Argentine Tribune of Composers' Prize for his chamber work Yzkor. His music has been recorded by CRI, Cadenza, ERM, Albany and Bridge Records.

Since 1994, guitarist Matt Gould and violinist Beth Ilana Schneider have commissioned, recorded and performed New Music around the world, as well as conducted ensemble residencies at schools such as Harvard University, Wellesley College, and Uludag Conservatory, Turkey. On faculty at Eastern Mediterranean University on the island of Cyprus from 2000-2005, Duo46 organized bi-annual composition residencies on campus with many composers of New Music, including Jorge Liderman. Their second recording on Summit Records, "Untaming the Fury," features new American works they commissioned in commemoration of 9/11. "Aires de Sefarad" featuring 46 Spanish Songs for Violin and Guitar by Jorge Liderman is their latest recording on Albany Records.
