Yiddish Art Trio

The Yiddish Art Trio features three of the top klezmer musicians in New York today. Blending infectious traditional melodies with new compositions, sumptuous chamber music-like arrangements and breathtaking improvisations, this rising new ensemble is out to redefine the sound of contemporary klezmer.  The trio formed in early 2009 as the Michael Winograd Klezmer Trio, and has toured nationally and internationally to critical acclaim, most recently teaching at Yiddish Summer Weimar, for the theme, “New Yiddish Music.” These three performer/composers are stretching the limits of tradition, re-composing and re-contextualizing Yiddish music for the concert hall and the dance floor. They incorporate elements of new classical music, minimalism, art song, as well as Yiddish vocal music, cantorial music and theater music.
