Avner Dorman

Merima Kljuco, accordion

 

 

Program:

Bardanashvili Elegy for Strings
Kljuco Sarajevo Haggada

This concert features works by both Jewish and Muslim composers, and includes a world premiere, commissioned by CityMusic, by composer Merima Kljuco, who will also perform on accordion. The new work, Sarajevo Haggadah, is a reflection on a Haggadah hidden from the Nazis during World War II, which was saved by the local community in Sarajevo. Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Geraldine Brooks, and journalist and author Joshua Hammer, will serve as narrators to discuss a Muslim library inTimbuktu, saved by the local community in similar fashion. Georgian and Israeli composer Josef Bardanashvili’s beautiful Elegy for Strings rounds out the compelling program.
