The Senior Cantor of Park Avenue Synagogue in New York City, the exceptional singer and performer Azi Schwartz, has recorded the new album “Heritage —Treasures of Jewish-German Composers” in an inspiring collaboration with the RIAS Kammerchor. This album features music by Jewish composers of German origins and honours the founders of Park Avenue Synagogue, German Jewish immigrants who established the congregation in 1882. The musical heritage they brought with them from Germany has been at the heart of services ever since, serving as an inspiring foundation for our community’s worship experience. “Heritage” embarks on an intriguing musical journey, beginning with the forefathers of modern synagogue music in Germany, and continues with their followers in America who reimagined the American soundscape of Jewish music.See more about this project by watching the promo video here, and listen to the whole album via Spotify here.
