The Klezmer Shul - Veretski Pass
July 15, 2010
Inspired by the synagogues of pre-war Eastern Europe, The Klezmer Shul is rooted in Jewish liturgical melodic principles and emotionals intonations. This four-movement instrumental suite transmits the emotional power of synagogue singing without the use of words, incorporating elements of jazz, avant-garde, classical, klezmer, and folk music. Stu Brotman, string bass, basy, baraban; Cookie Segelstein, violin, viola; and Joshua Horowitz, 19th-century Budowitz button accordion, tsimbl have toured North America and Europe with their unique blend of traditional, newly arranged, and newly composed klezmer music.
