On the road since 2011 with this repertoire, Oppenheim produced Fotografie in 2013, a recording that pays homage to Klezmer and the great Yiddish standards. It is a journey into Yiddish culture and the jewish soul. Humour, joy, doubt, nostalgia, irony, tenderness, contradictions, endless questioning and reasoning, are all part and parcel of the “Jewish experience”.
