Maya Fridman

” Maya has the unique talent to find a deeper meaning in music, and express it with a strong emotional performance. This performance is always an act of magic. Her passion for new music is an outstanding investment for the future development of the instrument. ” – Maxim Shalygin

Musician, medium, priestess. For Maya Fridman (1989), these words mean virtually the same thing. Music is magic, she believes. And as a performer, she enjoys taking her audience to that other, magical world. This is how she turns each concert into an almost religious ritual.

The composition commission from the Grachtenfestival is a wonderful crowning achievement of her journey with the festival so far. Tree of Life” is a musical narrative inspired by the ten sefirot of the Tree of Life, the spiritual principles of the Jewish religious tradition. Maya’s new composition reflects the gradual ladder of spiritual development that the Tree of Life symbolizes. This cycle is written for instruments from both the classical and Middle Eastern traditions. In this cycle, Maya weaves her new compositions with the gems of Persian poetry by Rumi, performed by singer Channa Malkin. The concert will be introduced by Safa Mirror. Tickets
