at Congregation Beth Israel
229 Murdock Ave.  Asheville, NC 28804
AmiciMusic, Asheville’s own award-winning chamber music ensemble, returns to Congregation Beth Israel for another exciting “JEWISH JAZZ” concert with all new music.  Steve Loew, clarinet, and Daniel Weiser, piano will perform this incredible program of clarinet and piano music that highlight some important Klezmer influences on the jazz instrumentalists and composers of this period, many of whom were Jewish.  Dr. Weiser will tell the fascinating story of the great fusion of musical styles from ragtime to blues to Klezmer that helped produce the new Jazz style in New York City in the first decades of the 20th century as the wave of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe met up with the Great Migration of African-Americans from the South. This program features some more wonderful Klezmer-inspired pieces by Lev Kogan and Michele Magnani, as well as works by Benny GoodmanGeorge GershwinLeonard Bernstein, and more. Loew and Weiser have performed in over 20 countries around the world and put on a show that is second to none.
