Starting in the late 1980s, David Krakauer began a personal and musical journey through klezmer: the celebrative music of his Eastern European Jewish ancestry. On that journey, he traveled the world, established himself as one of the leading performers of klezmer, and came closer to a deeper understanding of his cultural identity. As a clarinetist, band leader, composer and soloist Krakauer has collaborated with a diverse cross section of world renowned artists including Itzhak Perlman, Fred Wesley, the Kronos Quartet, Socalled, John Zorn and Iva Bittová. Krakauer will talk with the musicologist Hyacinthe Ravet about this journey and illustrate by playing live along with examples from his many ground breaking recordings.

In cooperation with the Centre Marc Bloch.
