Leonard Nimoy hosts a 13-part series that celebrates the American Jewish tradition by exploring the extraordinary range of its music. Each program illuminates a major theme reflected in American Jewish music: biblical epics set to music by Kurt Weill and other 20th century masters; Jewish legends in tone poems, film scores and operas; sacred masterpieces and the great cantorial tradition; the joy of klezmer; symphonies and concertos based on Jewish themes; the mysteries of Sephardic music; Holocaust reflections; songs from the Golden Age of Yiddish Theater; and world premieres of recently discovered Jewish compositions by Leonard Bernstein.
