August 5 – 9, 11 p.m. @OMA-Probebühne
„Free Klezmer Duos”
led by Alan Bern, Michael Winograd und Patrick Farrell
Have you ever wondered how musicians play together when they're not on stage in front of an audience? Free Klezmer Duos, a project created by Yiddish Summer Director Alan Bern, gives you the chance to "be backstage" and find out.
The cult hit of the Krakow International Jewish Culture Festival in the mid-2000s, Free Klezmer Duos is a late-night session in the OMA from August 5-9. A platform for spontaneous, unrehearsed musical duet encounters among the musicians giving concerts in the Festival Week, there are only two rules:
1) there must always be two and only two musicians playing an improvised duet, and
2) break rule 1 if necessary. After that, anything can happen.
