Jacob and the Angel for Piano and Orchestra

Jacob and the Angel for Piano and Orchestra July 23, 2016

I expect that I will be using Max Stern’s books about Bible and Music and Psalms and Music in connection with my course on the Bible and Music in the Spring. Stern is a composer, and not only is his piece exploring the story of Jacob wrestling with an angel interesting musically, but the expanded retelling on the screen as the music plays in the above video is also fascinating in its own right, as is the choice of images to accompany the words and music. And so don’t just listen – watch and read as well, and then let me know what your thoughts on the piece are.
