Mozart and Klezmer!

“Mozart In-Between”

Did you ever expect to have the music of Mozart paired with Klezmer music? Read on–

Pianist and conductor David Greilsammer has a passion for devising performance programs that create new experiences in listening to music. He likes to find links in the unexpected, and to explore new contrasts in the seemingly similar music of Mozart. Check out the video below that includes Mozart and Klezmer!

The title of this new disc, “Mozart In-Between”, signifies Greilsammer’s interest to explore the conflicting elements in Mozart’s music, “the opposing forces of light and darkness, the human and the divine, childhood and adulthood, conservatism and innovation”, and so on.

On this CD, we get interesting performances of two comparatively early Mozart works:

  • The D major Symphony K181 and the
  • E flat Piano Concerto K271 – called ‘Jeunehomme’

This music is performed with the Geneva Chamber Orchestra.

Here is David Greilsammer playing and conducting Mozart’s piano concerto #9:


And here are David Greilsammer and Gilad Harel – clarinet and basset clarinet- with excerpts from a concert with the Geneva Chamber Orchestra that includes Mozart music and Klezmer music! (Neat!)
