Currently onNoExit view at The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is Bezalel on Tour, an exhibition that celebrates the 106th anniversary of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Israel’s oldest institute of higher education and a leading international academy of art, design and architecture.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum will also present films, an artist talk, and on Wednesday, December 12th beginning at 7 PM, members of the No Exit New Music Ensemble will present a concert program inspired by Bezalel on Tour.

The program includes works by Shulamit Ran, Morton Feldman, Miklós Rózsa, Andrew Rindfleisch and Corey Rubin, all of whom are Jewish and/or Israeli composers. “We want to create an intimate and ‘singular’ experience for the listener with each piece being very much it’s own thing — a standout in it’s own right.” The only non Jewish composer represented on the program in Maurice Ravel, whose setting of Kaddish, will be performed by vocalist Corey Rubin and pianist Nick Underhill. Ravel’s arrangement of the work for cello and piano will also be performed by Underhill and cellist Nick Diodore. Read the rest of this entry »
