Moritz Weiss Klezmer Trio - Klezmer Explosion [LP]
Cat. no: UTR4971
Release Date: 3rd May 2021
Genre: World Music
Production of the album “Klezmer Explosion” by Moritz Wei Klezmer Trios & Friends on CD & vinyl. In terms of content, the album opens up its own compositions, traditional pieces & songs and compositions from the international Yiddish Music and Klezmer scene.
If the first pieces are still in the trio formation, different guest musicians gradually join the line-up and form an 8-person ensemble in the finale. MWKT has been walking the tightrope between tradition and innovation from the very beginning. “Klezmer Explosion” is another attempt to draw an arc from the
past into the future.
On the one hand you will find traditional pieces and songs from the repertoire of great revivalists of the past century G. Feidman, the Klezmatics and Ch. Alberstein. In return, new (klezmer) compositions by M. Wei , I. Trenev, N. Waltersdorfer and H. Eisel stand for a contemporary approach to the world genre “Klezmer”
