Renan Koen will Perform a Concert in Hemdat Israel SynagogueRenan Koen will perform her Holocaust Remembrance Concert in Haydarpaşa Hemdat Israel Synagogue, on October 24th Thursday.
The pianist, composer, soprano and music therapist Renan Koen said the following about the concert:
"I am very excited, because on the evening of October 24th, I will perform the Holocaust Remembrance Concert, in the fabulously beautiful Haydarpaşa Hemdat Israel Synagogue (in Kadiköy, Istanbul), with a great artist. In the concert, with the precious Czech pianist Jiří Hrubý, besides the pieces composed in the camp by the Theresienstadt composers Viktor Ullmann and Gideon Klein -which I play with deep admiration-, we will be playing Erwin Schulhoff's 'Ironies' together using 4 hands. this piece was composed in a dadaist mode. Also the concert will be bearing a big surprise; but as this is a surprise, it cannot be understood without being seen. It will be a great pleasure to share a music so wonderful in a synagogue so beautiful."
Koen is also adding, though giving away another surprise, there will be a coctail, starting at 18.30, before the concert, where there will be delicious Sephardic foods.
