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.
