A series of four concerts presented by the JMI to accompany the Daniel Libeskind Exhibition 'Space of Encounter'
posted 21 August 2004

Libeskind originally trained as a musician before turning to architecture. He has also repeatedly underscored the importance of his Jewish heritage to his intellectual and architectural vision. The Barbican would like to underscore both points by inviting the Jewish Music Institute to present four concerts of Jewish music.

Every Wednesday evening, during the Daniel Libeskind Exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery: 'Space of Encounter' there will be late opening during which the exhibition will remain open until 8pm. During this time there will be lectures as well as musical performances and the Jewish Music Institute has been invited to present four concerts of Jewish music during this exhibition. These will include Ashkenazi, Sephardi, Liturgical and Classical music suppressed by the Third Reich and will take place on Wednesdays: 13 October, 17 November, 15 December and 12 January from 6.15pm—8.00pm
All the events are free to same day ticket holders to the
exhibition. Tickets £8.00 (concs. £6.00)
