JMI Online: Jerusalem Orchestra East West – The Land They Promised Me
This week our live broadcast partnership with Jerusalem Orchestra East West continues with a concert of a new work titled: “The Land They Promised me”
Text by Lucy Ayoub and music by Tom Cohen
A totally imaginary story that really happened to two women, on two continents and in one promised land. On stage is the Jerusalem Orchestra East-West with its 30 musicians and one Lucy Ayoub who engages them in a dialogue of words and sounds. In addition, the concert includes a number of instrumental works in virtuoso renditions by soloists from the orchestra. Interspersed are short stories that connect musical segments that extend from the Middle East to Eastern Europe, to here and now.
Conductor – Tom Cohen
You can watch the performance at 6.30pm GMT on our Facebook page on on our website.
