Trielen et Jutta Carstensen – Oj wi fajn

Yiddish songs, klezmer music

Advitam, 2009

Klezmer music and Yiddish songs in an original instrumentation.

The Trielen Ensemble is a trio composed of a clarinet, an oboe and a bassoon. With a rich musical background taking its source in baroque music, this band has a wide repertoire, of all styles and times, Thus from Bach’s transcriptions to works by W.A. Mozart or François Devienne, this trio got famous in the beginning of the 21st century with a wide catalogue  of original compositions (Auric, Tansman, Ibert, Martinu, Françaix, etc). Moreover, this formation attracts today’s composers. Several pîeces have been written for the Trielen Ensemble such as those from Bruno Siberchicot, Yves Pignot and more recently Jean Claude Wolf, Henri Pauly Laubry and Yassen Vodenicharov.

This CD of Yiddish songs and klezmer music was born after the meeting of the Trielen Ensemble with the German singer Jutta Carstsensen, singing teacher and in charge of training for musical pedagogy.
