“Yiddish Art Trio may just be one of the most sophisticated young Klezmer collectives around. “
Jake Marmer
The Jewish Daily Forward

“A dynamic, tuneful, mysterious new album. …Yiddish Art Trio takes otherworldly cantorial and Jewish folk themes and adds a jolt of 21st century energy.”
New York Music Daily

“The Yiddish Art Trio is forging a new kind of klezmer music. With its astute blend of harmonically complex contemporary chamber music, klezmer colors and rhythms and a certain underlying folk aesthetic, the band is both more cerebral and yet earthier than similar configurations; the result is exhilarating and thoughtful.”
George Robinson
The New York Jewish Week

Since early 2009 the Yiddish Art Trio has set out to redefine the scope of contemporary Yiddish music. Deeply rooted in klezmer and Yiddish music, YAT uses traditional idioms to explore new forms and harmonies, vastly expanding klezmer’s musical language. The musicians, recognized globally as authorities within their field, are known for their ability to harness the full range of tonal and expressive possibilities of their instruments, individually and as a trio. The music, whether ecstatic or introspective, is thoughtfully composed and brilliantly performed.

The members of the Yiddish Art Trio are a tight-knit group of internationally accomplished, genre-transcending  musicians. They have recorded and performed with such noted artists as Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Frank London, Adrienne Cooper, Cantor Yaakov Lemmer, Alicia Svigals and others. The band has toured throughout the United States and Europe, performing their music to appreciative audiences and critical acclaim.
