Heart and Soul
First CD of a Klezmer band with musicians from Freiberg, Saxony
""...They play with heart and soul, and thus following the essence of Yiddish music. ...."Harts un Neschome", which literally means ‘heart and soul’, is the name and indeed programme of the album and evokesthe character and style of their sound.
In line-up and style the band follows traditional pieces of Klezmer, but there is more than just the strive for perfection of music of Jewish tradition. Harts un Neschome shows a commitment to play genuine Klezmer rather than just follow a temporary fad. And what a legacy it is. The 19 tracks on this CD all stem from a heritage of the Eastern shtetl, there are dances and songs for all occasions from various time periods and backgrounds ....
All songs are performed with dedication and allow the listener to share the musician’s emotions. These recordings will warm your heart and soul. Moreover, the joy and exuberance of their style of playing not only shows their virtuosity and musicianship, but is extremely infectious. Their music is wonderfully engaging..."
