From Ghetto to Cappella: Interfaith Exchanges in the Music of Baroque Italy
The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
The early-music series Salon/Sanctuary Concerts offers a program of unaccompanied Hebrew chants and music of Strozzi, S. Rossi, and B. Marcello, among others, illustrating a vibrant dialogue during a time of great oppression—a cross-fertilization of musical ideas and cultures between Venice’s Jews and Catholics that traversed the forbidding walls of the city’s Jewish ghetto.
