“Vos Heylt Yeden Kerper” Langford – concert | WORLD PREMIERE

A premiere performance of the concert Vos Heylt Yeden Kerper (Yiddish: “Who Heals All Bodies”) by Sasha Langford – Canadian composer, musician, and pianist.

Vos Heylt Yeden Kerper (Yiddish: “Who Heals All Bodies”) is a transportive live performance work that interprets conventions of Ashkenazic liturgical music through electronic production techniques, piano, and voice. Blurring the line between new music and new cantorial composition, Sasha J. Langfrod stages decisively contemporary arrangements for synagogal melodic forms, while evoking a listening experience reminiscent of the introspective nature of Jewish prayer.
