London Klezmer Quartet: To the Tavern (Proper Music) 4/5
SOME years ago BBC 4 aired a compelling Timeshift documentary on klezmer and the revitalisation of this traditional east European Jewish music, abandoned as surplus luggage in the 20th-century migrations.
But the void of a present without a past told and a new generation took a fresh look at its heritage. Dusted-off traditional klezmer reappeared alongside exciting modernised versions infused with jazz, folk and even rock.
The all-women London Klezmer Quartet, full of musical savvy, deliver an earthy mix of violin, clarinet, accordion and double bass here.
The instrumental compositions by Ilana Cravitz, Susy Evans, Carol Isaacs and Indra Buraczewska are melodically and texturally rich and played with much energising gusto — Dobriden, The Inn Keeper’s Wife, Summertime Waltz, Bulgar and Riga Runde delight, though the classics sung in Yiddish are perhaps less successful.
