Omer Quartet

Grammy-nominated “clarinet wizard” David Krakauer (Time Out) is one of a kind, moving seamlessly across jazz, klezmer, and classical genres — and “overwhelmingly expressive” in them all (Wall Street Journal). He performs with both his duo partner, South-African pianist Kathleen Tagg (“kinetic,” Downbeat), and the up-and-coming Omer Quartet, recent winner of multiple competitions; the program mixes classic, klezmer, and contemporary works — including Osvaldo Golijov’s entrancing, klezmer-inspired masterpiece, The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind.



Sergei Prokofiev — Overture on Hebrew Themes, op. 34
Osvaldo Golijov — Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind
Claude Debussy — Première Rhapsodie

Traditional klezmer music and contemporary works by John Zorn and Kinan Azmeh
