From Odessa to New York
In this two-concert series the Stiletto Sisters explore the rich and darkly humorous world of Yiddish song and the mysterious poetry of medieval Sephardic music as well as instrumental works that have taken Jewish music as their inspiration. The program includes Ernest Bloch’s beautiful ‘From Jewish Life’ and ‘Baal Shem’, works by influential New York composer/improviser John Zorn, Fritz Kreisler and Hungary’s György Ligeti as well as contemporary song by Leonard Cohen and Deborah Conway.
Stiletto Sisters have been wooing audiences in their home town of Melbourne for the past 15 years with their seductive blend of Hungarian gypsy, tango and love songs from around the world. Led with breathtaking virtuosity by Hungarian trained violinist Hope Csutoros (My Friend the Chocolate Cake) the trio also includes the dynamic piano accordion playing of Judy Gunson (Cosmo Cosmolino) and the wonderful talents of Jo To on double bass. The Sisters perform with extraordinary emotional range from extreme delicacy to blazing intensity and more than a touch of humour. Their performances do come with a health warning: the velvety seduction of their 3-part harmonies has caused many to faint with delight.
