Judith Berkson

July 19, 2018 , 7:30 pm

In conjunction with the exhibit “Chaim Soutine: Flesh,” The Jewish Museum and Bang On A Can — the forward-thinking, multifaceted contemporary classical music organization — present a concert by Brooklyn-based composer, pianist, and vocalist Judith Berkson.

Mirroring Soutine’s connection to images of shtetl life, Berkson, herself a cantor, blends the sounds of Eastern European Hazonos (cantorial) chants with the music of renowned 20th century cantor Yossele Rosenblatt, composer Franz Schubert, electronic experimentation and analog keyboard, creating a unique sound.

The New York Times described her solo album, “Oylam” (ECM Records) as “Standards and Schubert and liturgical music, swing and chilly silences, a beautiful Satie-like piece to open and close the record.”
