The fifty acts Svigals booked revolve around three themes: Jewish music, virtuoso female instrumentalist/improvisers/composers, and all kinds of string music, traditional and contemporary. From an electronic violist turning Bartok on his head to the lightning speed of traditional Bulgarian fiddling; from a master of the traditional klezmer clarinet to spontaneous 21st century keyboard explorations of those ancient melodies, the month is a feast of the most interesting music coming out of New York and beyond.
