Hundreds of burning candles and the wonderful acoustics in the Portuguese Synagogue set the stage each month for unique evening concerts. The American pianist Carolyn Enger is known for her thoughtful, sensitive, and expressive performances.
Her recitals are always about more than just the music: the origin and background of the musical pieces are just as important. Case in point is her last programme, called Mischlinge Exposé, with music by composers who the Nazi regime considered half-Jews, like her own father, Horst Enger.
In the Portuguese Synagogue she will play a selection from that programme, along with music by other Jewish composers from both Europe and America: siblings Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn, Eisler, Bernstein, Mahler, Schoenberg, Zemlinsky and Copland.
