Introduction to Klezmer Music Workshop
July 19 - 25, 2023
10 a.m. – 1 p.m. & 3 – 6 p.m.
with Szilvia Csaranko, Susi Evans and Johannes Gräßer
If you are looking for a "crash course" in klezmer music, either as an introduction or to fill in your existing knowledge, then look no further! Working both by ear and with written music, the masterful teaching team will guide you through details such as phrasing, ornamentation, style, rhythm, harmony, accompaniment, and the roles and functions of different instruments within the ensemble. All instruments are welcome – winds, strings, brass, keyboards and percussion. You don’t need prior experience with klezmer music, but you do need to be able to play your instrument. So if your musical “home” is classical, jazz, or something else, but you’re ready to discover the beauty of Yiddish music, or if you’re already on the road of Yiddish music but want to go deeper with the help of superb teachers, this workshop is for you! It will also include some repertoire that belongs to this year’s special topic "Greco-Turkish-Yiddish Connections,” so you will be able to join in when those tunes come up in jam sessions.
Workshop fee: 465 € Standard / 315 € Reduced / 645 € Sponsor / 165 € under 18
