In the Embrace of Tango: Jewish Tango
This program explores Argentine tango and its crossed-path with Jewish culture: tango in the pre-WWI Europe, later in the ghettos, in the early 20th century NYC and Buenos Aires Yiddish theater and through compositions of the first generation of Argentine-Jewish composers.
Examples of the Lorena Guillén Tango Ensemble in collaboration with the Triangle Jewish Chorale.
Some of the tangos in Yiddish, Spanish and English that make the repertoire of this concert program:
My Yiddishe Momme (J. Yellen & L. Pollack)
Frilling (A. Brunod & Sh. Katcherginski)
Papirosn (traditional; H. Yablokoff)
Olvido (L. Rubistein & L. Amadori)
Nuestro Balance (Bernardo Mitnik Lerman)
and other works, all arranged for the Lorena Guillén Tango Ensemble by Alejandro Rutty.
