THE PALE OF SETTLEMENT

Holywell Music Room

Holywell St
Oxford
OX1 3BN

Alison Rose (Soprano)
Gareth Brynmor John (Baritone)
Florent Mourier (Pianist)
Presented in association with the National Opera Studio, with the generous support of the Nicholas John Trust.

Between 1791 and 1917 there existed in eastern Poland and western Russia a vast area known as the Pale of Settlement, created by Catherine the Great in an attempt to squeeze Jews out of her Empire. While financial poverty dominated, musical life was maintained and even blossomed. This concert, given by artists of the National Opera Studio, will shine a light on this little-known yet rich heritage of Yiddish art song.
