About the concert
Four years after his San Francisco Opera Company debut, Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell decided to devote himself to the music of Sidor Belarsky (1898-1975) one of the twentieth century's most prolific performers of chazzanut, Chassidic nigunim and Yiddish art song. In The Sidor Belarsky Songbook, Anthony delves into the rich, vibrant world of Ashkenazi Jewish culture and song with a performance of selections from the Sidor Belarsky Songbook.
