The Helen & Irving Sunshine Memorial Concert

The gorgeous, chamber music-like sounds of David Krakauer's Acoustic Klezmer Quartet feature the world-renowned clarinetist, whose playing can be heard in recordings and performances by the Kronos Quartet, Emerson String Quartet, Dresdner Philharmonie, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, Klezmatics, and the works of composer Osvaldo Golijov, among dozens of others. Backed by accordion, bass, and drums, the Quartet performs a repertoire largely drawn from and emphasizing the beauty of traditional klezmer dance tunes, ritual songs, and reflective melodies, all given the ineffable David Krakauer touch.
