Saturday | November 4 2023 | 7:30 pm


“David Krakauer is such an overwhelmingly expressive clarinetist who moves so seamlessly between different genres that for a minute you’d almost think that there’s no appreciable difference between jazz, klezmer and formal classical music" (The Wall Street Journal). Widely considered one of the greatest clarinetists on the planet with his own unique sound and approach, Grammy nominee David Krakauer has been praised internationally as a key innovator in modern klezmer as well as a major voice in classical music. The program includes Keepers of the Flame – a site-specific work composed by Krakauer and Tagg at the borders of Poland, Belarus and Lithuania – as well as klezmer favorites and a selection from Osvaldo Golijov’s Prayers of Isaac The Blind. Featuring students from Kaufman Music Center and Montclair State University’s John J. Cali School of Music.
