East of the East River in Brooklyn, N.Y., recorder virtuosos Daphna Mor and Nina Stern are part of a living tradition.
“There is this concept of the Middle East, east of where we are now, east of the Western world,” Mor said. “Nina and I just brought the New York elements to it.”
And so East of the River was born, an ensemble exploring traditional repertory from east of the Danube while incorporating personal styles from their backgrounds in classical, jazz and world music. They will perform at 4 p.m. today in Elizabeth S. Lenna Hall with the first concert of the 2012 Logan Chamber Music Series.
