The Shostakovich Project
Crossing borders on new paths: klezmer is the dance and festival music of eastern European Jews. The modern klezmer quartet combines this music with classical and contemporary currents of western European music, venturing beyond traditional borders, without severing the traditional roots. For the Shostakovich project “Songs from Jewish Folk Poetry”, the modern klezmer quartet has worked on the song cycle and researched the Yiddish originals in archives.
The musicians are: Andrea Pancur (voice), Johannes Paul Gräßer (violin), Franka Lampe (accordion) and Alex Hass (bass).
