Yale Strom has become one of the world’s most productive and influential scholar-artists of klezmer culture and history. He has composed original music that combines klezmer with Chasidik melodies, as well as Roma, jazz, classical, Balkan, Arabic and Sephardic motifs. Strom’s compositions range from folk to orchestral, and works have been performed by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, San Diego Chamber Orchestra, Hausmann Quartet, Burdick-Thorne String Quartet, Rachel Barton Pine, Mike Block, Bordeaux Philharmonic, the Ostrava Philharmonic of the Czech Republic, and others. He has also composed original music for theatre, film and television.
