Salamone Rossi – an online workshop with Elam Rotem
April 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm£5
Elam will begin the session by telling us a little about himself and how he became interested in Early Music. He will then go on to a presentation on Salomone Rossi and the Jewish musical scene in Italy in the early 17th Century. We will sing together two pieces by Salomone Rossi, one Italian Madrigal (Udite lacrimosi spirit d’averno) and one Psalm in Hebrew (Lamnatseach al haggittit / Psalm 8). After that Elam will share with us how Rossi’s unique endeavours inspired him to compose new compositions in the style of the early 17th century and we will hear some examples.
