Avery Gosfield


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. 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.
