Beethoven in the Yiddish Imagination

Ludwig van Beethoven, a figure emblematic of the peaks of Western culture, loomed large in the Yiddish imagination. From Yiddish translations of Ode to Joy by poets such as Y. L. Peretz and M. Rivesman, to short stories written for children about Beethoven, to biographies, novellas, and poems about Beethoven, to centennial celebrations reflecting on Beethoven's legacies in the Yiddish press, there are ample testaments to Yiddish speaking Jewry's love for Beethoven.

Join us for an evening celebrating Beethoven in the Yiddish imagination including a performance of Ode to Joy in Yiddish translation, a bilingual dramatic reading of a Yiddish retelling of an apocryphal story of the origins of the Moonlight Sonata by actors Allen Lewis Rickman and Yelena Shmulenson, and performances of two of Beethoven’s masterworks with Jewish connections: his song cycle An die ferne Geliebte, written to texts by German Jewish poet Alois Isidor Jeitteles, and his String Quartet Op. 131 which uses a melodic motif from a traditional Kol Nidre recitation – a traditional Jewish liturgical melody. Musical performances will feature baritone Mario Diaz-Moresco, pianist Spencer Myer, and the Ulysses Quartet.

Ticket Info: $15 general; $10 YIVO members, students at yivo.org/Beethoven or 917-606-8290
