Yiddishe Fantazye

Weisberger/Branthomme/Triestan Trio

3rd CD in our collection "Découvertes"

Yiddishe Fantazie brings us deep in the universe of Eastern Europe Jewish music, long before the accordion and the clarinet became inseparable of klezmer music.
At that time, the main instruments were the violin, the hammered dulcimer (tsimbl) and the bass (cello or double bass). During weddings, the musicians made the audience dance, but also cry. “God” was a common word that was pronounced “Gott”, and that went along with music and vodka in good spirits.

From old klezmer recordings and poetic texts in Yiddish, the Weisberger/Branthomme/Triestan Trio gives us an authentic and delicious music. To be listened without moderation.
