Field Work In Focus: Speranta Radulescu
A conversation with Sperana Rdulescu on her work with the Roma lautar musicians of Clejani (known today as the Taraf de Haidouks), and folklorist and violinist Constantin Lupu. This event is part of an on-going series presented by the Klezmer Institute (klezmerinstitute.org) and will be hosted by Christina Crowder.

Sperana Rdulescu is an ethnomusicologist at the Peasant Museum in Bucharest and associate professor at the National University of Music - Bucharest. A specialist on lautar music, she is author of numerous books and articles and supervises the Ethnophonie series (twenty-five CDs so far) that features traditional musics of Romania. Radulescu conducted groundbreaking field work with the Roma lautar musicians of Clejani (known today as the Taraf de Haidouks), and worked with folklorist and violinist Constantin Lupu to produce and album of Jewish music from the Botosani region titled "Festive Musics of the Jews of Botosani."  

About the Series
Much of the European klezmer canon was collected and curated in the early twentieth century by Magid, Kiselgof, Beregovski and other members of the Russian Jewish folklore movement, but important field work continued from the 1980s through to the present. Meet some of the musicologists, musicians, folklorists and archivists who are intimately engaged with the deep work of oral transmission in musical culture. Each thematic series will feature 3-5 individual interview sessions followed by a capstone round table discussion.  

Series 1: Collecting Minority Musics in Central and Eastern Europe
Join Klezmer Institute's Christina Crowder to meet the people who have conducted some of the most important field work in Jewish music in central and eastern Europe in the late twentieth century. Tune in live to ask your own questions and to participate in an intimate conversation about research with minority populations behind the Iron Curtain that puts a focus on the personal reflections and stories that don't get included in scientific papers.
