TRADITIONAL KLEZMER MUSIC, with musical guests Kleztory (new selection)
“The solo playing is astonishingly mature not merely in its technical attributes but also in its warmth, brilliance, and subtlety of colour and inflection. … this is just pure, lyrical, unadulterated playing of the highest order…” – Gramophone
“His vibrato and tone are varied, his bowing techniques immaculate and his awareness of harmony and consequent shading omnipresent.” – The Strad
“A subtle and expressive musician, who knows how to use the most detailed technique of his instrument to seduce. A true artist.” – Le Devoir
André Moisan is known for his consummate mastery of the instrument, his impressive musicality and the clarity of his playing. Since 1977, he has made regular concert and radio appearances as a soloist and chamber player. His numerous concerts abroad, in particular at Carnegie Hall, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Radio-Berlin, established him as a leading performer
Their emotional charged shows, replete with humor and energy, bring happiness to everyone present. Diverse cultural backgrounds, passion, experience, and dedication make Kleztory exciting and unique; truly one of the most dynamic instrumental ensembles in Canada and the world today.
This concert is a part of the Féstival Les Saisons Russes de Montréal 2018 program.
