STOP PRESS... STOP PRESS... STOP PRESS...
Di Sheyne Milnerin - A Yiddish 'Die Schone Mullerin' - is a reworking of Schubert's cycle of unrequited love by bass-baritone Mark Glanville using songs and poems from the Yiddish tradition, many of them in fabulous new arrangements and compositions by Alexander Knapp.
The image at the head of this page, 'a sheyn lid hob ikh gezungen', is by the young, London-based artist Liorah Tchiprout. You can see examples of Liorah's recent work in 'Hidden City,' a joint exhibition with the artist Justin Northcott from 19 June-2 July at 83 Kinnerton Street, London SW1X 8ED.
We're delighted to announce that, following a highly successful sell-out performance of 'A Yiddish Winterreise' at The Kennedy Center, Washington, Mark Glanville has been invited to return and participate in 'The Three Basses', a recital of Jewish music featuring three low-voice singers at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Watch this space for further details... On the downside, 'A Jewish Romance' which was to have been performed at the Purcell Room on 21 October 2013 with subsequent recording has been cancelled due to divorce.
