Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

Nov. 11, 2009

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;
and write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.


To coincide with the January release of the CD on the Naxos label, 
performances will be given at the Purcell Room on 10 January and the Royal 
Northern College of Music on 17 January. Details below.

Mark Glanville bass-baritone
Alexander Knapp piano
This highly acclaimed sequence of songs from the Yiddish repertoire 
recreates the original, Schubertian journey in a Holocaust context. The 
singer reflects on the life and world he has just seen destroyed as he 
flees the Vilna ghetto.
'Half of them are arranged by the superb pianist Alexander Knapp, an 
expert on Jewish music... Glanville was masterly in sustaining its 
technical and emotional demands' (Opera Now).
