Clarinetist David Krakauer, an internationally recognized voice in the classical music world, will be performing Beyond Crossover on Friday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. at Bryn Mawr College’s Thomas Great Hall. Krakauer’s performance is part of the 2012-13 season of the Performing Arts Series.
Beyond Crossover includes the classical works of Leos Janácek, Johannes Brahms, Olivier Messiaen, Steve Reich, and Claude Debussy, as well as traditional klezmer pieces Doina, Der Gasn Nign, Terkish Yale V’Yove Tanz, and Der Heyser Bulgar. Krakauer will be joined by pianist Kathleen Tagg and Will Holshouser on the accordion.
Krakauer is both a major voice in classical music and a master of Eastern European Jewish klezmer music. He has appeared with the Tokyo, Kronos, and Emerson quartets, and as a soloist with the Dresden, Seattle, and Detroit symphony orchestras among many others. With his band, Klezmer Madness!, he has redefined the klezmer genre with major appearances at Carnegie Hall and internationally. Krakauer is on the faculties of Mannes, the Manhattan School of Music, and the Bard Conservatory.
