ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Two of the leading contemporary American performers of Jewish klezmer music, tsimbl player (cimbalom/hammered dulcimer) Pete Rushefsky and fiddle virtuoso Jake Shulman-Ment perform a lively program of music rooted in the Eastern European klezmer tradition. The earliest European recordings of klezmer from the first decade of the 20th century present the centuries-old pairing of tsimbl - hammered dulcimer - and violin. In this recording, Rushefsky and Shulman-Ment prove themselves to be masters of the old sounds and innovators in creating a new contemporary performance system for the music - Concert Form Klezmer.

Inspired by Eastern classical music systems, such as the Ottoman fasil and Central Asian shash maqam, Concert Form Klezmer expands the expressive possibilities of klezmer music and provides a pathway for musicians to create performances that develop extended musical narratives. Concert Form Klezmer develops a large-scale compositional unit, “the Concert,” a suite interweaving composed melodies and improvisations in a defined thematic progression, unified through modality and melodic gestures. The Ternovka Sessions presents two newly-composed Concerts that fans of traditional klezmer will be sure to love.

Pete Rushefsky is a leading revivalist of the tsimbl (cimbalom), the traditional hammered dulcimer of klezmer music. As a composer, he has worked to promote a performance system for contemporary klezmer known as Concert Form Klezmer that draws inspiration from Eastern classical musics and Jewish mysticism. Rushefsky is currently touring with violinist Itzhak Perlman in a program/recording titled Eternal Echoes: Songs and Dances for the Soul, featuring the leading cantor Yitzchak Meir Helfgot, as well as klezmer revival legends Hankus Netsky and the Klezmer Conservatory Band. He has performed at the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Library of Congress and Boston’s Symphony Hall, as well as a number of other leading international venues, and curated and performed at the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival’s Yiddish performing arts program. Rushefsky has been featured on PBS’s Great Performances, National Public Radio’s Prairie Home Companion, All Things Considered and American Routes, as well as Radio One France. He regularly concertizes and records with many of the leading contemporary performers of Yiddish music, including clarinetist Joel Rubin, violinists Steven Greenman, Lisa Gutkin, Jake Shulman-Ment and Alicia Svigals, flutist Adrianne Greenbaum and vocalists Michael Alpert, Ethel Raim and Rebecca Kaplan. By day, Rushefsky serves as Executive Director of the Center for Traditional Music and Dance in New York City, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving and nurturing the performing arts traditions of the city’s immigrant communities. A popular instructor at Yiddish folk arts camps internationally, Rushefsky authored a pioneering instructional book on adapting the American 5-string banjo for klezmer, and an upcoming book on klezmer performance for hammered dulcimer. He is a well-known lecturer on klezmer and other traditional musics with a number of published articles to his credit.

Violinist Jake Shulman-Ment is among the leaders of a new generation of Klezmer and Eastern European folk music performers. He is recognized internationally as both one of the leading performers of the klezmer violin tradition, as well as an innovator for his work in exploring the deep connection between klezmer and muzica lautareasca (Romanian Romani/Gypsy music). Shulman-Ment has performed and recorded extensively throughout the Americas and Europe with groups including Romashka, MetróFolk, Daniel Kahn and the Painted Bird, Frank London, Duncan Sheik, Di Naye Kapelye, Adrian Receanu, The Other Europeans, Margot Leverett and the Klezmer Mountain Boys, Fleytmuzik, Életfa Hungarian Folk Band, and many others. He co-founded and regularly performs at Tantshoyz, New York’s Yiddish dance party sponsored by the Center for Traditional Music and Dance, and is frequently invited to accompany dance workshops led by renowned Yiddish dance master and ethnomusicologist Walter Zev Feldman. An internationally in-demand teacher, Shulman-Ment has been a faculty member of New York’s Henry Street Settlement, KlezKamp, KlezKanada, Klezmer Paris, the Krakow Jewish Culture Festival and Yiddish Summer Weimar, and other festivals throughout the globe. He performed with the An-sky Ensemble in representing the continuity of Yiddish music at the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall, and was featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. In 2010 Shulman-Ment received a Fulbright research grant to collect, study, perform, and document traditional music in Romania, where he performed with the well-regarded Botosani Folk Orchestra. His debut solo CD, A Redele (A Wheel) (Oriente Musik, 2012) was nominated for the German Record Critics’ Award.
