    Yaniv d'Or - Countertenor

    Exile is a condition in which long periods of peace and prosperity are followed by short episodes of brutal removal and cruelty. Beauty and love thrive during the former, ugliness and hatred during the latter. An artistic culture especially of music and poetry, grown and developed during the peace, sustains the exiles during persecution. Peace is what we all wish for and we say so in the traditional ‘peace be with you’ greeting among Jews – Shalom aleichem - and Arabs - Salaam aleikum – the language of which confirms a common family origin. Both descend from Abraham as do Christians who in their official nightly prayers at Evensong also acknowledge him as their vicarious ancestor. Yaniv D’Or’s programme celebrates this shared heritage in the beauty of song. Latino-Ladino, already on its 100th performance, winner of top CD of BBC and Gramophone Magazine. 

  • THE SIBLINGS OF MANTUA

    NEW OPERA - OLD MUSIC

    Salamone Rossi was a Jewish composer who was born in Mantua in 1570. His sister Europa Rossi was an acclaimed singer, among the first Italian real opera stars. The two siblings were engaged by the royal court and praised by the culture-loving Prince Gonzaga, whose favours opened doors to the city. Rossi wrote modern, innovative music, creating art that built bridges between the established, elevated world of wealthy, free men at the court and the destitute, deprived world of the Jews in the ghetto. The music includes rarely performed works by Salamone Rossi and newly composed material. This is a contemporary opera with its roots in 17th century Europe, a politically charged time not unlike our own.

  • Historiche Stadthalle Wuppertal  | EXALTATION - Premiere

    Ensemble NAYA

    Murat Cakmaz Ney/Duduk/Voice  Marvin Dillmann Didgeridoo/Percussion  Eyal Leber Flamenco Guitar  Amit Tiefenbrunn Viola da gamba   

    Erez Mounk Percussion  Nadav Ovadia Psalterium  Bari Boscovitz Theorbo 

    Yaniv d'Or - Countertenor/Musical Director

    Exaltation is the third disc in a trilogy by singer Yaniv d’Or with Ensemble NAYA. It follows Liquefacta est released in 2013, which contained settings of the Song of Solomon, and Latino Ladino in 2015, which focused on music of the Sephardic diaspora after the 1492 expulsion of Jews and Moslems from Spain. Exaltation is an essentially joyful album celebrating the spirit that binds wandering communities, the gods they worship and the hopes they share for peaceful co-existence. 

    Three themes - distance, humanity, religion - interweave through the tracks. Distance is in the exile experience and in songs from lands as far from each other as Spain from Libya or England from either. Humanity is in the social rituals described in the love songs and lullabies. Religion is in the circumstances that gave rise to the songs, difference of worship being once grounds for expulsion. 

    The counter-tenor Yaniv D’Or performs with the group NAYA which features instruments from diverse cultures. At the core of the group are violin, guitar, theorbo and percussion. Exotic colour comes from the psalterion, didgeridoo, ney and duduk. With D’Or’s ethereal counter-tenor voice, the music becomes an aural representation of the diaspora which has given substance to the entire trilogy.

    Yaniv d'Or - Countertenor

    Exile is a condition in which long periods of peace and prosperity are followed by short episodes of brutal removal and cruelty. Beauty and love thrive during the former, ugliness and hatred during the latter. An artistic culture especially of music and poetry, grown and developed during the peace, sustains the exiles during persecution. Peace is what we all wish for and we say so in the traditional ‘peace be with you’ greeting among Jews – Shalom aleichem - and Arabs - Salaam aleikum – the language of which confirms a common family origin. Both descend from Abraham as do Christians who in their official nightly prayers at Evensong also acknowledge him as their vicarious ancestor. Yaniv D’Or’s programme celebrates this shared heritage in the beauty of song. Latino-Ladino, already on its 100th performance, winner of top CD of BBC and Gramophone Magazine.
