La Tourelle Orkestra, c'est un tour du monde dans le désordre. Le groupe interprète des folklores de l'Europe de l'est, des musiques tziganes, du jazz manouche et des musiques juives qu'il livre avec une énergie et un charisme qui emporte les foules. Au fil de leurs nombreuses expériences, les membres ont acquis une maturité et une complicité musicale qui se transmet rapidement et insuffle la fête.

Chamber music, NYC, 1 May 2009

Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom celebrates Israel Independence Day with a new program that highlights classical and Klezmer clarinetist Pavel Vinnitsky and the spectacular pianist Daniel Epstein on Friday evening, May 1st, at 8pm in Schnurmacher Chapel at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, 7 West 83rd Street, New York City. In May 2008, Mr. Vinnitsky was featured as the klezmer clarinet and bass clarinet soloist with the Bachanalia String Orchestra of New York in a concert dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the State of Israel at Merkin Hall, NYC. The May 1st Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom concert features guest artists Daniel Epstein, piano, Eliot Bailen, cello and Artistic Director, Susan Rotholz, flute, and Pavel Vinnitsky, clarinet, in a "talk-back with the artists" after the concert. The ensemble will play works by Brahms (1833-1897), Haydn (1732-1809), and contemporary composer Paul Schoenfield (1947-), whose works are inspired by his love of Hebrew, as well as a selection of Klezmer pieces. Regulars to the chamber music concerts should note in their calendars the change from Saturday afternoon to Friday evening for this end of season performance. The free concert is open to the public.

The product of several years of research and live performance, "Interview" represents a collaboration featuring composers Cecilia Arditto, Anna Hostman, Ryan Purchase (renowned as the trombonist of the Lithuanian Empire) and Jeff Morton.

"Migration", by the string trio Cordame, combines musical explorations of sonic images with an unusual sensuality and sensitivity. Featuring Jean Falix Mailloux (double bass), Marie-Neige Lavigne (violin), and Julie Odile Gauthier-Morin (cello), accompanied by Rami Giguare (guitar) as well as Pierre Tanguay and Ziya Tabassian (percussion).

In the new CD by Nozen, a quartet of "ultraspace surfers" ride a wave of Jewish music and contemporary jazz, formed by Damian Nisenson (sax/composition), Bernard Falaise (guitar), Jean Falix Mailloux (bass), and Pierre Tanguay (drums).

Selections from the CDs to be launched will be performed on October 28th. Performances by other artists from the Malasartes Musique label will also take place, including Ironiko Orchestra, Bomata, and the Jean-Marc Habert Quartet.

Lecture in Yiddish with Eddy Portnoy on “Little Smart Alecks: Professional Mirth Makers Zuni Maud and Yosl Cutler and their Puppets”

Lecture in Yiddish “Little Smart Alecks: Professional Mirth Makers Zuni Maud and Yosl Cutler and their Puppets” by Eddy Portnoy on Sunday, October 24, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. The lecture will be illustrated with audiovisual material and will feature the short film “Yosl Cutler and his Puppets.” At the Jewish Public Library, 5151 Côte Ste-Catherine Road, Montreal. Sponsored by the Nathan Igelfeld Foundation. Cost $5 for JPL members and students, $10 others. For advance tickets and information, call 514-345-6416 or 514-345-2627 ext. 3006 or visit www.jewishpubliclibrary.org.

Anything is possible in Yiddish theatre – but dolls that talk back to you? When artists Zuni Maud and Yosl Cutler created their “Modicut” Yiddish puppet theatre at the end of 1925, it was an instant hit among the Yiddish-speaking masses in New York City, and within a few years they were touring Europe and the Soviet Union to great acclaim. Come hear the fascinating history of this unusual piece of Yiddish culture.

Eddy Portnoy teaches Yiddish language and Jewish literature and culture at Rutgers University. A contributor to The Forward and Tablet Magazine, he writes on Jewish popular culture with an emphasis on Yiddish.

The author will be introduced by Rivka Augenfeld, co-Chair of theYiddish Cultural Committee of the Jewish Public Library.

Composer, producer, pianist, vocalist and harmonica player Jason Rosenblatt is one of the world’s foremost harmonica innovators. His performance on the unassuming instrument has helped to open new musical ground for the instrument long associated with “the blues,” into art forms as diverse as jazz, bluegrass, klezmer and Turkish music. His latest project consisting of original jazz, blues and ragtime compositions is gritty but performed with good humour. Jason is joined by master of all things string Joe Grass (guitar), Joel Kerr (bass) and Evan Tighe (Drums).

Join Dr. James A. Grymes for the only Canadian stop on his tour to launch his new book, Violins of Hope, with a unique multimedia presentation on Monday, March 23, 7:30 p.m.

Dr. James A. Grymes, interim chair of the UNC Charlotte Department of Music, will read from his critically acclaimed new book, Violins of Hope: Instruments of Hope and Liberation in Mankind’s Darkest Hour, with performances of related music and video clips throughout the evening. A book signing will follow. Violins of Hope tells the remarkable stories of violins played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust then recovered and restored by Israeli violin-maker Amnon Weinstein.

Academy Award-winning composer John Williams writes, “Violins of Hope is a work of research and scholarship that forms one of the most moving chronicles in the history of Western music.”

Michael Wex book launch, Montreal, QC, Canada, 28 Aug 2016

Michael Wex will launch his new book, Rhapsody in Schmaltz

Sunday, Aug 28, 2pm
Jewish Public Library,
5151 Côte Ste-Catherine Road,
Montreal, QC, Canada.

Admission: $10 for members and students, $15 for non-members.
For tickets and information call 514-345-6416 or visit www.jewishpubliclibrary.org.

A study of Ashkenazi food that does for Yiddish food what Wex’s book Born to Kvetch did for Yiddish speech, Rhapsody in Schmaltz traces the history and social impact of the cuisine that Yiddish-speaking Jews from Central and Eastern Europe brought to the U.S. and that their American descendants developed and refined. The book looks at how and where these dishes came to be, how they varied from region to region, the role they played in Jewish culture in Europe, and the role that they play in Jewish and more general American culture and foodways today. It traces the pathways of Jewish food from the Bible and Talmud, to Eastern Europe, to its popular landing pads in North America today. With an eye for detail and a healthy dose of humor, Michael Wex also examines how these impact modern culture, from temple to television.

A unique collaboration between a new york-based klezmer band Litvakus (originally from Belarus) and a Berlin-based singer Sasha Lurje, who is well-known in Mtl due to her association with Klezkanada.

Goyfriend (druG-Goy) is a new program featuring one of the most sought after voices in klezmer music and critically acclaimed Litvakus, a band known for its raw, "rootsy" and energetic performance of Jewish music.This program offers for the first time to western audiences a chance not only to hear rare northern European Jewish music, but more importantly the context in which that music was created. The brainchild of Latvian native, Lurje and Belarussian Zisl Slepovitch - Litvakus’ bandleader, and an accomplished composer, clarinetist and ethno-musicologist, and is based on their extensive research and field recordings in their native countries and the surrounding area.
