The Thomashefskys: Music and Memories of a Life in the Yiddish Theater

Loading...
Michael Tilson Thomas explores the lives of his grandparents, Boris and Bessie Thomashefsky, through a musical performance that features five performers and the New World Symphony orchestra, performed at the New World Center in Miami Beach. Founding members of the Yiddish Theater in America, the Thomashefskys owned theaters, published their own magazine, wrote columns in the popular Yiddish newspapers, sponsored and encouraged generations of young artists, brought countless Yiddish artists to America, tirelessly raised funds for progressive social causes, and, through it all, were adventurous trendsetters. This story presents a musical sound that few have heard, assimilating Eastern European klezmer and cantorial modes with American tones and rhythms.
