New York, NY, 9/23/03-- The Kaufman Center presents an evening with the critically acclaimed Polish ensemble, The Cracow Klezmer Band, on Thursday, October 9 at 8 PM in Merkin Concert Hall. One of the most creative and innovative music groups in Poland, The Cracow Klezmer Band, founded in 1997 by arranger and accordionist Jaroslaw Bester, will perform original compositions and improvisations based upon particular elements of klezmer tradition. In a recent concert review, The Chicago Tribune proclaimed, "Of all the ensembles that have emerged in recent years to explore the meaning of klezmer in a new era, few have reached as high as the Cracow Klezmer Band, and fewer still have attained comparable results. Every composition whether exploring ebullient, age-old dance forms or investigating ancient cantorial melody painted an alluring portrait of Eastern European life and culture." The Cracow Klezmer Band is: Jaroslaw Bester, accordion; Jaroslaw Tyrala, violin; Oleg Dyyak, accordion, clarinet and percussion; and Wojciech Front, double bass.
