Encounters

The following selections of orchestral, chamber and choral concert programs are examples from a very rich repertoire of encounters; encounters between cultures, religions and composers. These encounters reflect my musical, cultural and religious heritage and the endeavors I had made with them as cantor and concert singer. All composers in this selection, Jews and Non-Jews were born to the German culture, studied it and were, or still are, successful with it.
