Silent Tears CD release

I went to the Toronto release concert for Payadora Tango Ensemble’s Silent Tears: The Last Yiddish Tango last night at Heliconian Hall.  Nearly all the music played was on the CD which I described in some detail here. There were a few “extras”.  There was a song from Lenka Lichtenberg’s new Album Thieves of Dreams.  There was also an upbeat Argentinian tango to finish which I was rather in need of.

And when it’s music and words that are as disturbing as Silent Tears it makes for a difficult evening in many ways.  So full credit to all the musicians involved for a great performance and to Dan Rosenberg for thoughtful and informative intros.  There were also well done surtitles.  That really should be a standard these days.
