The hebrew word "Klezmer" melts "Kle"
(vessel) und "Zemer" (song) . When a "Klezmer"
plays, he becomes the instrument of the song. Not he himself is
in the center of interest, he merely passes the music to the listeners.
Formerly, the Klezmorim were jewish traveling musicians from eastern
Europe, playing on celebrations. Their repertoire included liturgical
melodies, jiddish songs and chassidic dances - deeply religious
but also very agile. For a broader look at the history: http://www.princeton.edu/~klez/klezmerdispensers.shtml
Trio Emanuel, founded in 1997, draws from the
richness of melodies of a tradition older than 3000 years. The
concept of Klezmer is to understand music from the plentyness
of cultures as an expression of life. In all their opposites,
the colours of human feelings are being explored - anxiety and
hope, crying and rejoicing, pleasure and pain. All the music,
be it songs, dances or ballads, have been arranged by the Trio
