A Treasury of Jewish music almost forgotten: repertoire from 1930s Berlin recorded by Hirsch Lewin on the Semer label later destroyed by the Nazis on this day in 1938. The collection, painstakingly reconstructed sixty years later from private collections around the world, is given life anew by the virtuosic Semer Ensemble in this CBTC-exclusive concert, hosted by Southminster United Church, presented in partnership with the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, RideauStone Art Centre and artspace613.
