The wild and haunting tunes of traditional klezmer - The Kugels perform
original klezmer-inspired works by New Zealand composer Ross Harris.

“As someone who usually writes music for the concert hall, what is the
appeal of klezmer? Because I have always been interested in the work of artists
like Gustav Mahler, Woody Allen, Hannah Arendt, Paul Celan, The Cohen Brothers,
and Tony Judt (and having a small accordion tucked away unused) the invitation
to join a klezmer band seemed intriguing. It changed my life. The original tunes
that evolved in the Shtetls of Eastern Europe and found their way out into the
world through Jewish emigrants were very direct and emotionally powerful folk
music. I found the characteristic modes interesting but mostly enjoyed the
unusual juxtaposition of chords and melody. I couldn't help dabbling and soon
enough The Kugels had about thirty of my melodies in their repertoire to go with
traditional tunes. This CD is a collection of my pieces.” - Ross
