«Bay mir bistu sheyn» (Arr.: Cyrille Lehn)

«Bei mir bistu shein» («To me you’re beautiful»): one of the most charming declarations of love in musical history is at the same time a homage to Klezmer, the Yiddish folk music tradition. In the world of Klezmer, laughter and tears, farewell and tenderness, love and pain are so close together that «Yiddish Rhapsody» is sure to be a concert of big emotions. The Sirba Octet brings together eight musicians whose day job is playing in classical ensembles and orchestras, most in the Orchestre de Paris. Established with the intention of reinterpreting Jewish music, the ensemble brings an alluring mixture of Klezmer and Gypsy Jazz to the stage. Together with the jazz singer Isabelle Georges and the Tonkunstler, the evening will feature refined, striking arrangements that chart a course from traditional Jewish folk songs and dances from various European countries via the Charleston and Broadway hits to Hollywood film music. A hymn to life!
