Alicia Svigals will guide participants through gems of klezmer fieldwork conducted in the early 20th century in Ukraine, discussing and trying out together rhythmic approaches to the notes on the page. The selections will be drawn from the transcriptions of violinist Avrohom-Yehoshua Makonovetsky (1872-?), whose notebooks reside in Kiev’s Vernadksy National Library of Ukraine and are only now becoming available to us. Bring instruments and voices and we’ll try ideas out online!
