Klezmer songs are much more than simple musical arrangements. Not only the melodies, but also the emotional manner, in which the interpretations emerge are what make this kind of music so unique. The very soul is brought to resonate – from the first through to the last second.

The well-rehearsed musicians fit perfectly to one another as they almost compete against each other, each encouraging the other, supplementing something that the other began, adding points, imitating, counteracting the sequences of the partnering instruments – often with concentrated earnestness and sometimes good for a light-hearted prank. Everyone, who is able to attend, is swept away.
Every concert is one-of-a-kind…
