Azkara – A Jewish Requiem (Full Premiere Live)


Eminent composer Simon Sargon noted that there had not been a larger-scale Jewish musical work dealing with remembrance, and so, to honor the memory of his friend Cantor Ephraim Biran, he composed “Azkara – A Jewish Requiem”. I was honored to offer the world premiere of this work at our Kristallnacht program this past fall, and the resulting recording and video are now available to you. I hope this music is moving and helpful — whenever, and whomever, you remember.
