Il Mantovano Hebreo (The Mantuan Jew)

“[G]raciously sophisticated yet subtly mischievous...exquisite intonation and refinement” —The Los Angeles Times

In the late Renaissance, at the height of Mantua’s artistic splendor, a young Jewish violinist burst through the barriers of discrimination and became one of the most renowned composers and performers at the court of the Gonzaga dukes. And in 1622, this musician revolutionized Jewish music with his Songs of Solomon, the first collection ever of originally composed music for Hebrew psalms and prayers. Yet very little is known about the personal and creative life of Salomone Rossi Hebreo— Salomone Rossi the Jew. Enter Profeti della Quinta, a young male vocal quintet originally hailing from the Galilee, which has been championing the work of Rossi to great critical acclaim.

Tickets to this event includes Museum admission.
