“Hebrew Melody” with Jack Liebeck, violin, Danny Driver, piano

This event has passed

One of the most haunting, beautiful pieces of music ever written by a Jewish composer, one that for all its brevity somehow pierces straight to the heart of Jewish culture, Joseph Achron’s Hebrew Melody sits at the centre of this recital from two of London’s most admired Jewish artists – the Classical BRIT-winning violinist Jack Liebeck and the pianist Danny Driver. The concert will begin with Brahms’s Sonata in A major, followed by Bloch’s Baal Shem suite (including its famous second movement, Nigun). After the interval, the Achron, followed by Mendelssohn’s wonderful
F Major Sonata and finally, John Williams’s unforgettable main theme to Schindler’s List.
“Liebeck threw off the fiendish pyrotechnics with obsessive panache. The final slow movement was hypnotic, mesmeric…” – The Times on Jack Liebeck
“Driver’s irreproachably eager and stylish pianism is a joy to encounter” –
Gramophone on Danny Driver
