2013 Chutzpah! Festival presents Klezmerata Fiorentina


They're back for two shows this time and with new repertoire after their 2011 Chutzpah! sold out concert!

Comprised of four principal players of a leading Italian symphony and opera orchestra, Florence's Orchestra del Maggio Musicale, Klezmerata Fiorentina was formed in May 2005 to develop a concert version of traditional Ukrainian-Jewish instrumental music, the heritage of the group's founder, Igor Polesitsky. The resulting style could be described as improvised Klezmer chamber music, which imbues the unique instrumental language, dance rhythms and authentic melodies of the historical klezmorim with a classical complexity of expression, wide dynamic range, and elasticity of tempo.

"... every time I hear them I don't know whether to laugh or cry because they play music to laugh and to cry!  I recommend them wherever possible because it's not only good entertainment, it's great music-making" Zubin Mehta

Klezamerata Fiorentina features Igor Polesitsky on violin, Riccardo Crocilla on clarinet, Francesco Furlanich on accordion and Riccardo Donati on double bass.
