Italian emotion – musical perfection

Comprised of four principal players of a leading Italian symphony and opera orchestra, Florence’s Orchestra del Maggio Musicale, Klezmerata Fiorentina was formed in May of 2005 with the purpose of developing a concert version of traditional Ukrainian-Jewish instrumental music, the family heritage of the group’s founder, Igor Polesitsky.

The resulting style could be described as improvised Klezmer chamber music, which imbues the authentic melodies of the historical klezmorim with a classical complexity of expression, wide dynamic range, and elasticity of tempo.
