U.S. premiere! Hear acclaimed klezmer chamber music ensemble Klezmerata Fiorentina perform Zai Gezunt, Kalinindorf. Based on the reinterpretation of music from the southern frontier of Ukraine, the program is named for the shtetl Kalinindorf, a Jewish community destroyed by the Nazis. The work pays musical tribute, both joyful and sorrowful, to those lost lives. Varied and exciting, it is influenced by Balkan, gypsy, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Yiddish traditions, which coexisted over the centuries in vast territories along the shores of the Black Sea. The melodies are also derived from the family heritage of Klezmerata Fiorentina's founder, Igor Polesitsky.
