"Now, someone explain to me why some of the best traditional klezmer is coming from Germany? For those of us waiting on a next fix from Budowitz or Khevrisa, Fialke steps into the breach. ..."
A special pleasure to listen to ...|
Fialke enchants its audience with the sound of a Jewish wedding from times when Yiddish culture was alive
throughout Eastern Europe. A fresh music full of warmth, love of live and longing, sometimes ecstatic, sometimes
unostentatious, sometimes dreamful. With virtuosity and a jolly vitality Fialke presents a rough archaic Klezmer that moves
the heart and makes the legs move, too.
Since 2009 Fialke appears with a new bandmember and the sound of two fiddles: Mark Kovnatskiy, a
young Russian virtuoso devil's fiddler and master of the old Yiddish fiddle style comes for Joachim Pohl. In his luggage he
brings also original pieces of his own to enrich the group's repertoire.
