  Product Description
Klezmer music has been experiencing a revival during the past 20 years. Since the beginning, world-renowned clarinet and mandolin player Andy Statman has been at the forefront. In his latest CD release, Statman and his supporting cast present a side of klezmer not often seen--an introspective, almost spiritual collection of songs. In the current wave of spotlight-grabbing klezmer stars, Statman seems perfectly content to let the music speak for itself. Almost effortlessly, his impeccable artistry shines through.

Klezmer has always been deeply rooted in tradition, and Statman's CD proves to be no exception. A good majority of his songs are based on old Hasidic and rabbinical melodies, written centuries ago, which he has pleasantly arranged for his quartet. "Kah Ech'Sof (My Soul Yearns)" is a typical example of this pattern. The gorgeous melody is generally thought to have been written by an 18th-century rabbi, and Statman's amazingly smooth clarinet sound wails away above his accompaniment in a melancholy tone. This is definitely not music for the masses--intimacy is the norm on this disc.
