Jazz in the Garden

Bester Quartet - Klezmer jazz

Concert as Part of the Cultural Summer Program 2016

The Bester Quartet from Krakow is one of the strongest voices of Jewish music in Europe – The four Bester Quartet musicians are our Jazz in the Garden guests on Sunday 31 July.

As key players in the Radical Jewish Culture series, the four classically-trained Bester Quartet musicians are dedicated to improvisation at the highest level, coupled with rousing compositions and arrangements of traditional melodies. The quartet has already produced eight CDs on John Zorn’s "Tzadik" label and the ninth is eagerly awaited.
