The Music of Dan Asia and the Poetry of Yehuda Amichai, panel discussion - March 4
TUESDAY, MARCH 4
The Music of Dan Asia and the Poetry of Yehuda Amichai, panel discussion
Whitley Auditorium, 6:30 p.m.
Asia’s song cycle “Amichai’s Songs” is based on work by Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai and wrestles with issues of national and religious identity in a war-torn reality. The panelists will consider the adaptation of Amichai’s texts into music, the poetry itself — in the original Hebrew and in translation, and its Jewish-Israeli attributes.
