Daniel Hope’s friend and colleague, violinist Simos Papanas, conceived this exotic one-time-only program combining both fine art and folk music traditions from Eastern Europe and the Balkans. Featuring works by renowned European composers and lesser known Bulgarian and Greek composers in the first half, the second half showcases classic Balkan/Middle Eastern and later traditional masterworks of the early 20th century including some from multicultural Izmir (Smyrna). Arranged by Papanas for a gathering of musicians from several styles, this program should be perfectly suited to the spiritual atmosphere of Mickve Israel.
