Yiddish Dancesfor Wind Orchestra

Gorb, Adam

Gorb’s brilliant classic combines his passion for wind orchestras and klezmer (the folk music of Yiddish-speaking people) with his theatrical flair in five traditionally based dances. Now thrilling, now touching, they are always affectionate, endlessly inventive, vividly scored, vibrant and life-affirming, to keep you on the edge of your seat but with a tear in your eye. Simply stunning. Le Chaim! (To Life!)
