The Thomashefskys: Music and Memories of a Life in the Yiddish Theater (Episode #3706H)

KQED Life: Mon, Apr 14, 2014 -- 8:00 PM

Bringing to life the words and music of the American Yiddish theater, the lead characters -- Bessie and Boris Thomashefsky (the grandparents of San Francisco Symphony music director Michael Tilson Thomas) emigrated to America from Eastern Europe in the 1880s. While in their teens, they began to play major roles in New York's Yiddish theater. For Jewish immigrants on the lower East Side of Manhattan, the theater was central to their lives, and provided a stage for the new ideas that were shaping the transition to an American way of life. In "The Thomashefskys," Tilson Thomas serves as guide through the lives and repertoire of his grandparents. Performed at the New World Symphony's spectacular new Frank Gehry-designed home in Miami, Tilson Thomas shares the stage with a 30-piece orchestra and ensemble cast to bring the repertoire and words of Bessie and Boris to life. With time, aspects of klezmer and cantorial sounds became more integrated and more American, as Jewish composers became immersed in their new surroundings, greatly influencing composers like Irving Berlin and George Gershwin.
