Event Details

Familiar faces; world-class musicians; arts treasure of Northern New Hampshire. The North Country Chamber Players return to The Colonial Theatre with a concert of Jewish composers featuring Osvaldo Golijov’s “Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind.” The Composer has noted that "Eight centuries ago Isaac The Blind, the great kabbalist rabbi of Provence, dictated a manuscript in which he asserted that all things and events in the universe are product of combinations of the Hebrew alphabet's letters: 'Their root is in a name, for the letters are like branches, which appear in the manner of flickering flames, mobile, and nevertheless linked to the coal'. The work for string quartet and clarinet based on this observation has been praised by the Boston Globe as spiritual, earthly—and earthy: “It is music of prayer, celebration, mysticism, and practicality.” Presented as part of The BHC Summer Cultural Series
