Albert Gumí – Klezmer music

Dimitri Shostakovich defined Klezmer music as “a smile amongst tears”. In fact, Klezmer music is highly emotional.

This workshop is adressed to fiddlers who are interested in this awesome genre and its characteristics. We’re going to play the most relevant melodies, modes and rhythms used in this old Jewish tradition, as we were Shostakovich.

Albert Gumi is the professor of classical and contemporary music improvisation at Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC)
