Cancelled: Beethoven in the Yiddish Imagination
Join us for a celebration of Beethoven in the Yiddish imagination, including a Yiddish translation of "Ode to Joy" and a bilingual reading of a Yiddish story about the "Moonlight" Sonata. An die ferne Geliebte and the String Quartet in C-sharp Minor, Op. 131, will also be performed, following a discussion of the largely unknown Jewish influences on these works.
