  • February 21, 2010 Unique instrumentation

    This music is unique in that string quartet performs Klezmer, which is not typical instrumentation. Good selections, however, not adaptable for sightreading performance in our experience. Note that the first violin must play from score, which is tiny, since there is no pull-out section for first violin. This music...

    would be greatly enhanced by including CD performance of authentic performers.
