Segelstein, Horowitz, Rubin, Charlottesville, VA, 25 Apr, 2013

Cookie Segelstein and Joshua Horowitz in performance with Joel Rubin and as guest artists with the UVA Klezmer Ensemble

Thursday, April 25, 2013, 8:00pm
Old Cabell Auditorium
University of Virginia
Charlottesville, VA

The first part of the concert will feature a trio performance by Segelstein, Horowitz, and Rubin. From 1992-94, the acclaimed duo Rubin & Horowitz performed throughout Europe. Their pioneering CD, Bessarabian Symphony: Early Jewish Instrumental Music, is credited with having initiated the historically-informed performance practice movement in klezmer music. It was called “very pure ... authoritative” by the Wall Street Journal, and “a major document of the so-called ‘klezmer revival’” in the journal, Ethnomusicology. This will be their first joint performance since 1994 and the first performance as a trio with Cookie Segelstein. After intermission, the trio will be joined by the UVA Klezmer Ensemble in a performance of Segelstein’s and Horowitz’s repertoire.

Tickets for the Klezmer Ensemble performance are $10 for adults and $5 for students. UVA students may request one complimentary ticket up until midnight prior to the concert.
