Candlelight Concert at the Synagogue  Thursday 18 September 2014 20.00

Isabelle Durin & Agnès Peytour

Isabelle DurinEach month at the Portuguese Synagogue: beautiful acoustics and hundreds of burning candles form the unique backdrop for the candlelight concert series. Tonight, French violinist Isabelle Durin plays Hebrew melodies accompanied by harpist Agnès Peytour.

Isabelle Durin lives in Paris and was part of the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester (Vienna, Austria) and the Orchestre national d'Île-de-France (Paris). Recently she's directed her attention more towards chamber music. She is especially interested in Jewish composers and melodies, culminating into the release of a CD, titled Hebrew Melodies of the Romantic Era in 2008 with piano accompaniment by Michaël Ertzscheid. Tonight at the Portuguese Synagogue, Durin will not be accompanied by piano, but by harp, played by Agnès Peytour.


The program includes Kol Nidrei by Max Bruch, a part from Baal Shem by Ernest Bloch, "Csárdás" by Vittorio Monti, but also John Williams's title music from Schindler's List.
