Strauss / Warschauer Duo

Klezmer World Music

Strauss / Warschauer Duo

“Warschauer’s range of technique and emotion is nothing short of astounding.”

Acoustic Guitar

 line-3

 

The Strauss/Warschauer Duo brings together two established musicians who are deeply committed to klezmer music and Yiddish song. Their performances are an integrated and intimate blend of songs, translations and instrumental music – grounded in tradition, yet thoroughly contemporary. They draw from klezmer, Yiddish, Hasidic and liturgical music and culture, adding their own original compositions and song settings. As they sing and play in shifting combinations of violin, guitar, mandolin and accordion, they create a dynamic atmosphere with an exceptional range of feeling – from delicate and refined to exuberant and foot-stomping.

 

Deborah Strauss and Jeff Warschauer are two of the most active and well-respected performers and teachers in the klezmer and Yiddish music scene. They are members of the {Klezmer Conservatory Band} and have performed with violinist Itzhak Perlman on film and in concert. As the Strauss/Warschauer Duo, they have performed to overwhelming acclaim in such diverse venues as the {Amsterdam International Yiddish Festival}, the {Jewish Culture Festival} in Cracow, the {Ashkenaz Festival} in Toronto, and the {Folksbiene Yiddish Theater} in New York City. They lead workshops and classes throughout North America and Europe and are on the faculty of the KlezKamp and KlezKanada Yiddish culture programs, and are frequent instructors for the Jewish Music Institute/SOAS at the University of London.
