Today, Budapest Klezmer Band play in Uzhgorod!

Today in Uzhhorod, at the Regional Philharmonic there will be a concert of the famous Hungarian ensemble Budapest Klezmer Band. The music event was organized with the support of the Consulate General of the Republic of Hungary in Uzhgorod. The concert begins at 19 o'clock. Admission is free!

The Budapest Klezmer Band, founded in 1990, comes from the heart of Europe, from the very geographic location where klezmer music originates. The Band's performance is an exciting musical experience in traditional Jewish folklore. They play musical arrangements, composed by the founder and musical director of the ensemble, Ferenc Jávori, who grew up in the former Munkács (now Mukachevo in Ukraine).

Jávori learned and played klezmer with the last surviving musicians from a once flourishing community where this music was an integral part of Jewish life. Other members of the band are also exceptional musicians, most being graduates of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music of Budapest.

The performance by the Budapest Klezmer Band transfers the audience back to now extinct joyous times in Central and Eastern Europe, when traditional Jewish music was part of the community's cultural fabric. The Band also specializes in theatrical productions, appearing on stage with performers. They are currently featured in the ballet PURIM, The Casting of Fate, and in the Fiddler on the Roof production of the prestigious Madách Theater in Budapest.
