Avery Gosfield is a specialist in medieval and Renaissance music. In 2004, a chance discovery of some Jewish-Italian sung poetry allowed her to conjugate her roots with her interest in early music. Since then, she has pursued the early-Jewish link with passion, painstakingly reconstructing the music for sung poetry in Yiddish, Giudeo-Italian, Judeo-Catalan, and Hebrew. In 2011, Dr. Alan Bern asked her to teach at Yiddish Summer Weimar, and she has been happily bouncing back and forth between both worlds ever since. She has given hundreds of concerts with Lucidarium, which she co-directs with Francis Biggi in venues such as the Vienna Konzerthaus, Ashkenaz (Toronto), and the Boston Early Music Festival. She has taught master classes on five continents, from the pre-school to post-graduate level, and lectures regularly. She has been the musical coordinator for a number of documentaries and curated symposiums dedicated to Early Jewish Music.
