For the second year The Globe is hosting a jazz event as part of the Brundibár Arts Festival, an annual programme of events in Newcastle and Gateshead that showcases the little known music written during the Holocaust.
We will be looking specifically at music influenced by jazz within Warsaw and the Warsaw Ghetto we will include pieces such as “Mary” and “Kocham twoje usta” by J. Kagan. From the Karasiński & Kataszek Jazz-Tango Orchestra we will perform several pieces. We’ll also incorporate pieces associated with the singer and songwriter Diana Blumenfeld. Additionally, we will include some American ragtime which would have been performed in Warsaw at the time as well as other popular songs of the era from composers and musicians such Irving Berlin and Louis Armstrong.
