This unique CD of Klezmer music, the traditional music of the Jews of Eastern Europe, brings this entertaining repertoire to a wider audience. The music is based on rigorous forms with regular rules, but, like jazz and folk, allows for a large amount of personal expression. It is by turn joyful and energetic for fun and dancing, and intense and poignant for quiet listening and reflection. I Musici de Montreal Yuli Turovsky & K.l~zt~ey On this disc, some of the world's best Klezmer musicians are joined by I Musici de Montreal, an award-winning ensemble that has made many recordings for Chandos, and is renowned for its adventurous programming and virtuosic performances. Kleztory is one of the most dynamic Klezmer ensembles in Montreal today.
