Cookie Segelstein and Joshua Horowitz in Concert
Don’t miss this opportunity for down-home, at-home music live from Cookie and Josh’s Berkeley living room!
This concert contains rare material from the repertoires of pre-World War II klezmorim (musicians), Hasidic melodies, as well as new compositions in traditional style. The original compositions are created according to the ancient tradition of klezmer musicians, playing music of all kinds, but with a recognizably Jewish sound. This music was traditionally used for celebrations, most commonly weddings, but also considered Jewish folk art music. It was not uncommon to have elements of indigenous music mixed with classical as well as liturgical phrases. It was also common in each town that the musical groups consisted of Jews, Gypsies, and local musicians, whose varied styles intermingled to produce a unique sound.
