Klezmerata Fiorentina

Klezmerata Fiorentina is a unique quartet of lead performers from Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino — one of the leading Italian opera and symphonic orchestras. Zubin Mehta, an outstanding contemporary director, has been its leader for 30 years. The ancient jolly Jewish melodies hide a complex emotional and spiritual world of the ancient wandering nation which created the Bible. It is not just music for entertainment, but heritage of the millenarian Yiddish civilization passed by professional Jewish musicians across the generations.

Klezmerata Fiorentina gave concerts in the most prestigious halls of the USA, Israel, Europe and Russia.

Klezmerata Fiorentina enriches its concerts with free communication between the performers and the audience; it accompanies the musical part with short stories, explanations and remarks. The musicians make the audience laugh and cry at the same time because their music smiles through tears. Their performance is not just playing separate pieces, but a top-class music show!
