Di Tsvey

Di Tsvey features the traditional pairing of the violin and tsimbl (Jewish hammered dulcimer) as rendered by two of the world\'s leading masters of klezmer music. The duo of Steven Greenman (violin) and Pete Rushefsky (tsimbl) perform traditional klezmer as well as new compositions that are rooted in the traditional forms of 19th and early 20th century Europe. With playful and delicate musical interaction the groups combination of artistry and soulfulness has enthralled audiences across North America and Europe. For this special Ashkenaz presentation the duo will lead a student ensemble of local string players through a set of virtuosi showpieces, lively dance tunes, and soulful nigunim, learned over three days of intensive morning workshops.
