A Snow-Covered Singing Journey with Polina Shepherd: In Vinter Farnakhtn
Join Polina Shepherd for a singing journey through Russian fields towards a Jewish home in a shtetl. In Vinter Farnakhtn by Dovid Hofshteyn is about a path surrounded by deep snows and memories. Let’s walk this path with two very different melodies and see how the colours change from melody to melody.
