Alicia Svigals, the world's greatest living exponent of klezmer fiddle, offers a hands-on demonstration of what makes the violin (along with the clarinet) a quintessential instrument of the klezmer ensemble. Alicia will demonstrate the unique ornaments and playing techniques that distinguish klezmer fiddle-playing and give it a singular Jewish voice. She'll also talk about the challenges she faced when she almost singlehandedly revived the lost art of the klezmer fiddle in her work with the band she cofounded, the Klezmatics.|
