From Carnegie Hall To Lower Manhattan - DAVID KRAKAUER Brings His Clarinet Mastery To The Stone; September 24 - 29, 2013
(Published: September 04, 2013)

New York - A major artist of great renown, clarinetist David Krakauer showcases his virtuosity in an intimate setting. He brings his unique sound to a week-long residency at The Stone, John Zornʼs downtown hot
spot in lower Mahattan.

As well as being a significant voice in the classical world, Krakauer is considered to be one of the most important innovators in Jewish klezmer music; contextualizing the ancestral sounds of his Eastern European roots for the 21st century. All of these cultural influences provide a powerful towline for his music, enabling him to embrace stylistically diverse and compelling projects, encompassing classical music, modern klezmer and jazz. These projects include:

 KRAKAUER'S ACOUSTIC KLEZMER QT.
 KRAKAUER PLAYS ZORN
 ANCESTRAL GROOVE
 KRAKAUER -TAGG DUO
 DUO AND TRIO IMPROVISATIONS
 KRAKAUER WITH STRINGS


Before leaving for his European tour in November, the clarinet virtuoso is proud to participate in the festivities surrounding John Zornʼs 60th birthday celebration.

David Krakauer is entering a new phase in his career. His latest work, THE BIG PICTURE, may be his most adventurous to date. Joined by an all-star cast, he
offers touching new arrangements and interpretations of familiar movie soundtracks - composed by the likes of John Williams, Marvin Hamlisch, Randy Newman, Wojciech Kilar and Vangelis. Having previously contributed to films by directors Ang Lee and Sally Potter, Krakauer now recasts and repurposes familiar melodies in a modernist setting. It speaks volumes about his musical point of view. Look for this new project in early 2014. To learn more about THE BIG PICTURE go to
