The Bible has inspired creative interpretation (midrash) not just by ancient rabbis but by musicians, artists and poets throughout the ages, including modern Jewish classical composers. In this three-part class, participants will listen to and analyze three Biblically based modern compositions: Bloch’s Shelomo Rhapsody, Bernstein’s Jeremiah Symphony and his Chichester Psalms. No musical background necessary.
