YOM – New King of Klezmer Clarinet

A tribute to Naftule Brandwein

Buda Musique

This CD features 14 tracks, among which a majority coming from the Jewish clarinet player from Galicia Naftule Brandwein (1889-1963). The recordings by Yom is supposed to  represent the original restored klezmer style

Young virtuoso of the klezmer clarinet, Yom explores the lands of traditional music, contemporary jazz and electronic music. Influenced very early by the style of Naftule Brandwein (pioneer of the klezmer clarinet in the 1920’s in New York), Yom quickly expressed his contemporary vision of klezmer music, first in the bands « Orient Express Moving Schnorers » and « Klezmer Nova », and even more with his duet with the pianist Denis Cuniot. It is in fact with the complicity of the latter that he presents today, in a quartet, this tribute to he who proclaimed himself « King of Klezmer Clarinet », Naftule Brandwein.
