Text by Yakov Glatstein.
Singing places surge in me, sorrow-stirred;
they arrange themselves and become the words
of recorded memory,
written in black on white
by a memory dipped in light.
I can't even fool myself.
A life pieced together from scraps of geography.
Streets and houses,
lamps and beds,
faces and silhouettes
are the commas and periods
of my biography
A film by Robert Paul Simons, The Netherlands, 2005.
The project was intitiated in 2003, in Sarajevo, during a conference of the Dutch organization Musicians without Borders when Shura Lipovsky heard the Mostar Symphonietta. She planned a program of Bosnian, Sephardic and Yiddish music and invited conductor Tamara Brooks to lead the orchestra.
In October 2004, Tamara Brooks, accordionist Merima Klujco and Shura Lipovsky went to Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina, to prepare the musicians of the interethnic Mostar Sinfonietta.
Their first concert took place in Holland in November 2004 for the conference ‘Singing the Bridge’, organized by Musicians without Borders.
In the summer of 2005, singer/actor Theodore Bikel jointed the project for a tour in Poland. The tour was called ‘Bridge to Peace’.
