Two Guitars at a Balkan Banquet

Accompanied by family members, Flory Jagoda paints a vibrant picture of daily life in pre-WWII Sarajevo, interweaving Balkan, Turkish and Greek essence with the musical matrix of 15th century Spain -- the foundation of Sephardic music. Guitarist Tim Sparks, joined by bassist Greg Cohen and Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista, combines his signature fingerstyle ragtime sensibility with genre-bending improvisations, classical music structures and flamenco voicings found in traditional Jewish songs of Southeastern Europe, touching on Sephardic, Ashkenazi and Mizrahi influences.

Tell Everyone, Everyone About Us..Artists in Exile: Hounded by Hate, Bearing Witness to Humanity

Featuring works by Dessau, Eisler, Korngold, Krenek, Lustgarten, Weill and Zemlinsky, the concert reflects Elysium-Between Two Continents' commitment "to let the voices of the exiled artists speak." Forbiddenn to pursue their profession, banned under the pressure of the National Socialists between 1933 and 1945, countless artists left their European homeland and found exile in the U.S. Many of these works celebrate the great sincerity and courage of their creators, and their brave defense of humanitarian values which encourages us today. Featuring Elysium-Between Two Continents Ensemble: Gregorij H. von Keitis, artistic director; Hartmut Kretzschmann, piano, music director; Michael Lahr, host.

Comedian Harmonists: Six Life Stories

Eberhard Fechner's socumentary tells the story of Germany's legendary vocal sextet undone by Nazi bigotry. Fechner interviewed four surviving members, interweaving their stories with the group's triumphant rise and tragic demise, underscored by their mellifluous tones and easy-listening repertory of Brahms to blues. Branded "degenerate" because three of its members were Jewish, the group was forced to disband at the height of a Beatles-like popularity. Both groups reformed-one was eventually banned in Germany, the other flourished for some years in exile. Germany, 1976, Parts I, II: 96 minutes each, German with English subtitles.
