Avant-garde and strikingly new, or simple and traditionalist, Farrell’s original song compositions are brought to life by these two widely respected performers of klezmer and Yiddish song. Focusing on new settings of verse by 20th – and 21st – century women poets from North America, Europe, and Israel, the songs portray an intimate and emotional inner realm of love, longing, motherhood, private joys, and private terrors. Kundish and Farrell warmly invite audiences into this poetic musical world they have been creating together since 2013. The combination of rigorous and subtle precision, flights of virtuosity, and emotional presence they bring to the stage make their performances thrilling and satisfying experiences.
