  •  
    Think long, sinuous, minor-key, violin-carried melodies wending their way over a toe-tapping, thigh slapping, hip-shaking beat - a beat that sometimes accelerates and seems to be running away in ecstatic joyousness.

    Klezmer (from Yiddish כּלי־זמיר, kley - instrument and zemer - song; 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 klezmorim or kleyzmurim. They draw on devotional traditions extending back into Biblical times, and their musical legacy of klezmer continues to evolve today.

LJOVA (Lev Zhurbin) - film composer, arranger, violist | music for film, Ljova and the ... - 0 views

  •  
    Though he was born in the string quarry of Russia and refined in the purifying precincts of Juilliard, Zhurbin turned out to be a lover of gritty hybrids. The music he writes and plays is full of Brahmsian tone, Bartok lines, hiccupping Hungarian rhythms, Klezmer soul and the sexy plaintiveness of tango and the blues.
    ---Justin Davidson, Newsday. //
    Rustic dances and evocative soundscapes, all crafted from ... the gorgeously grainy purr of his fiddle.
    ---Steve Smith, Time Out New York. //
    Eclectic with an ear for texture...Throaty melodies supported by pizzicato rhythms, lush chordal figures and counterpoint.
    ---Allan Kozinn, New York Times.
