Kerry Stratton interviewed Eric Stein, Artistic Director of the Ashkenaz Foundation, which presents the Semer Ensemble on Wednesday November 8, 2017, 8PM, at Toronto Centre for the Arts.

Hear about the incredible story of the Semer Records label, a “musical Noah’s ark” for Jewish artists banned by the Nazis from the music industry, and the tenacity of ethnomusicologist Rainer Lots who spent a decade tracking down original vinyl copies of the original discs lost in Kristallnacht. Selections of this music will be presented at the concert on November 8.
