Conductor: David Shemer

 

Avital Dery mezzo-soprano – Hagar
Tal Ganor soprano (Israel/Germany) - Ishmael
Keren Motseri soprano – Sara

Alessandro Scarlatti’s oratorio “Hagar and Ishmael” will be performed to
honor the debut of the JBO’s recording of the work.


The Baroque masterpiece “Hagar and Ishmael” by Alessandro Scarlatti,
a work of depth and incredible beauty, was performed by the Jerusalem
Baroque Orchestra some years ago, winning unprecedented, enthusiastic
responses from both audiences and critics alike. In response to audience
request (if somewhat overdue) we are performing the work to celebrate
the CD launch.

4  SONG OF SONGS

 

Elam Rotem composer and musical director

Ensemble “Profeti della Quinta”

 

Elam Rotem “For I am sick with love”

 

Where biblical love meets the musical world, stirring up emotions of the early 17th century; new settings of excerpts from the “Song of Songs”, Amnon and Tamar, Samson and Delilah. Also on the program, early 17th century instrumental works of Giovanni Francesco Anerio, Giovanni Maria Trabaci and others.

 
Following the immense success of the Israeli premiere of Elam Rotem’s dramatic work “Joseph and his Brothers” two years ago, the superb Israeli vocal quintet “Profeti della Quinta” returns to perform Elam Rotem’s new work - “Song of Songs”.

 “Profeti della Quinta”, enjoying great international success, has chosen to launch its new CD “Song of Songs”, recorded for the Pan Classics label, in concerts of the Jerusalem Baroque Orchestra in Israel.

Despite the discerning ear of our listeners, they will find it difficult to hear differences between early Baroque musical language and that of Elam Rotem!
