CD Reviews

Must own!

"This is a fantastic "holiday" CD. It is amazing how they blend the two (Klezmer & Nutcracker Ballet) into one. You'll never listen to the Nutcraker Ballet again without thinking about this delightful CD."

"Great fun for anyone who loves klezmer and isn't turned off by the concept of cross-cultural arrangements of classics. Creatively arranged. Expertly performed. Highly recommended."

"A joyful, multidimensional, and in places humerous variation on the classic Christmas music of Tchaikovsky, this CD brings together an entertaining and festive blend of klezmer sound and classical music. In addition to the great sounds, the titles, the moods, the album graphics, and even the song names (Dance of the Latkes Queens, Waltz of the Ruggelah) are funny and artistic."
