Music of Resilience and Rebirth in the Judeo-Baroque

MIRYAM & Les Enfants d'Orpheé

MIRYAM Baroque Ensemble joins Les Enfants d'Orphée for a celebration of Jewish baroque music in 17th century Europe, from the synagogues of Carpentras and Bordeaux to the cosmopolitan Portuguese Esnoga of Amsterdam, and from the Jewish Scuola of Mantua to the King’s Chapel in Paris. These communities united members of different Jewish traditions, including Sephardic, Ashkenazi, Italki, and Judeo-Contadin, who were also deeply immersed in their secular cultures around them. Their music demonstrates how these composers negotiated their place in their surrounding culture while also expressing their identity as Jews, both reveling in the vibrancy of Jewish life and nodding to darker stories of persecution, exclusion, and expulsion. These rarely-heard works offer stories of communal resilience and rebirth that remain relevant today.
