The Canadian ensemble KLEZTORY presents traditional and yet fresh klezmer on its highest level. The musicians‘ technical perfection makes the essence of klezmer shine: solid classical training combined with their joyful play and amazing devotion to their interpretations.
Kleztorys concerts are charged with passion, energy, humour and their nearly symbiotic interplay. Their dynamic, enthusiasm and joy affect the audience already after a few bars.

While remaining respectful of the rich klezmer tradition, KLEZTORY has always taken the liberty of adding ist own personality to its arrangements of the traditional repertoire. With their unmistakeable original compositions they forge their unique and authentic musical path.
The true spirit of klezmer!

Their emotional charged shows, replete with humor and energy, bring happiness to everyone present. Diverse cultural backgrounds, passion, experience and dedication make KLEZTORY exciting and unique; truly one of the most dynamic instrumental ensembles in Canada and the world today.

While remaining respectful of the rich klezmer tradition, KLEZTORY has always taken the liberty of adding its own personality to its arrangements of the traditional repertoire, infusing them with hints of jazz, a touch of classical, or a few drops of the blues. What emerges gives KLEZTORY a colour, a texture and an emotional depth that is refreshing and original.

The fifth album (release 2017) by KLEZTORY 'Nigun' (a Hebrew word meaning melody) plunges us deeply into the heart of Klezmer, halfway between tradition and modernity. These pieces, a mixture of original compositions and songs taken from the rich Klezmer repertoire of Eastern Europe, come together in harmony for our profound happiness. This is proof that there are no boundaries in music. We even reference Bill Monroe, considered to be the 'Father of the Bluegrass music'.

As usual, Kleztory places great emphasis on improvisation without abandoning one of the main elements that characterize this, that is, extensive yet delicately nuanced arrangements. In turn spirited, touching, melancholic and yet fun, the pieces gathered on Nigun explore a wide range of emotions.

Besides the exciting shows of the quintet, KLEZTORY also works with orchestras. Please contact us for further inquiries: info@artem-berlin.de.
