Available for the first time! Composed by klezmer great, Harold Seletsky, and winner of the 1997 American Society for Jewish Music Competition, this work fuses the unbridled joyousness of traditional klezmer with the complexity and demands of true chamber music. Also suitable for clarinet soloist with string orchestra. Award Citation from ASJM reads, “Seletsky has written an extraordinary work that pulls out all the stops for the klezmer player”.

From the opening doina to original freylekhs and concluding with a cadenza that has the option of being improvised, this work is the perfect syntheses of Seletsky’s training in the Schoenberg school of composition and his days as a clarinetist in the Borscht Belt hotels.
