German Goldenshteyn, a Holocaust survivor and Red Army veteran, notated over 800 melodies in the 40 years that he played Jewish weddings along the Ukrainian border with Moldavia, before moving to Brooklyn in 1994. He recorded his first CD “A Living Tradition” just before his tragic untimely death last month at age 71, and had a second CD on the way, along with plans for concerts and workshops in Poland, Germany, and Canada.

Now some of New York’s and the world’s finest klezmer musicians are teaming up to play a tribute concert and dance party featuring the amazing melodies German taught them all. All proceeds go to his widow, Mina, their daughter, Klava Rozentul, son-in-law Borya, and grandson Alex.

Directed by clarinetist Alex Kontorovich, the evening will feature such renowned artists as Frank London, Jeff Warschauer, Margot Leverett, Susan Watts, Aaron Alexander, and Alicia Svigals, with many surprise guests throughout the night.

Just try sitting still while listening to German’s collection of melodies!
