Klezmer (from Yiddish כּלי־זמיר, etymologically from Hebrew k’li zemer כלי זמר, “musical instrument”) is a musical tradition which parallels Hasidic and Ashkenazic Judaism. Around the 15th century, a tradition of secular (non-liturgical) Jewish music was developed by musicians called kleyzmorim or kleyzmerim. [Wikipedia]

The maestro joins four klezmer groups: Brave Old World, The Klezmatics, Andy Statman and the Klezmer Conservatory Band for a joyous get-together with unforgettable Klezmer melodies. As he says of the experience, “I caught the bug!” Want to see it all? Available from Angel Records, on CD and now DVD.

When Itzhak starts with the violin, if you do not have chills you have no soul. Truly amazing violinist.
