Klezmerata Fiorentina

Klezmerata Fiorentina

Featuring four principal players from the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale, a leading symphony and opera orchestra in Florence, Klezmerata Fiorentina was formed in 2005 to develop a concert version of traditional Ukrainian-Jewish instrumental music – the heritage of the group’s founder Igor Polesitsky. The result is improvised klezmer chamber music reminiscent of the instrumental language, dance rhythms and melodies of the historical klezmorim but with the unique complexity of expression, dynamic range and tempo most often found in classical music.

“…good entertainment and great music-making. Every time I hear them I don’t know whether to laugh or cry because they play music to laugh and to cry.” – Conductor Zubin Mehta

Klezamerata Fiorentina features Igor Polesitsky on violin, Riccardo Crocilla on clarinet, Francesco Furlanich on accordion and Riccardo Donati on double bass.
