Monday, October 3, 7 pm
Henech Kon: Beyond the Dybbuk
Lecture and Concert

Henech Kon
Lecture by Diana Matut, with a live performance of Kon's works by Re'ut Ben-Ze'ev (soprano) and Zalmen Mlotek(piano).

Henech Kon is best known today as the composer of the film score for The Dybbuk and his songs, such as “Shpilzhe mir a lidele in Yidish.” He was, however, also a brilliant pianist and musicologist, and wrote arrangements for dozens of Yiddish songs and other scores, among them Freylekhe kaptsonim (‘Jolly Paupers’, 1937). Born in Poland and educated in Berlin, he moved to Warsaw where he worked with the great writers of his time, and wrote music for their plays and kleynkunst performances. Melech Ravitch called him “the Jewish musician par excellence.”

After fleeing Europe in 1940, Kon settled in New York, where his life was marked by an unsuccessful, constant struggle for work and recognition. By the time of his death in 1972, Kon had already become virtually forgotten, even in Yiddish musical circles.

This lecture will present Kon’s life and work, and help to bring him the recognition he is due – and his music back on stage.

Presented by YIVO Institute for Jewish Research & Jewish Music Forum > $15 general admission; $10 YIVO membersstudents
