TRADITIONS - Atar Trio / Tour / Fall 2018

France / Israel / Netherlands

Classical, romantic and contemporary Israeli music in a moving Piano Trio concert. Next to Bach's Keyboard concerto and Bernstein's West side story Suite we are proud to present a newly commissioned music by the acclaimed Israeli composer Benjamin Yusupov. Yusupov's Trio presents a musical panorama of Jewish folk music traditions, including the use of musical sources from various ethnic communities. Yusupov also believes that timbre and color are important structural elements. He works with jazz, African music, Far Eastern music or Arabic sounds and Klezmer.

Piano | Violin | Cello | vocals
