Accompanied by original films created for this show, this cinematic concert tells Krakauer’s story of cultural heritage in an artful marriage of music and the moving image. The clarinetist re-imagines themes from iconic films with Jewish content from the last 50 years. Krakauer’s sextet delves into sensual, soaring, and daring interpretations of the music from movies integral to our collective memories, such as Fiddler on the Roof, Sophie’s Choice, Life is Beautiful, Cabaret, The Producers, and Funny Girl

About David Krakauer
Known simply as "Krakauer" to his fervent following, the world-renowned clarinetist is nothing less than an American original who has embarked on a tremendous journey transforming the music of his Eastern European Jewish heritage into something uniquely contemporary. That journey has lead Krakauer to an astounding diversity of projects and collaborations ranging from solo appearances with orchestras to major festival concerts with his own improvisation based bands. Having been showered with accolades,  for his groundbreaking work in classical, klezmer and jazz, Krakauer now finds himself at an artistic crossroads and is ready to make a daring leap into a new phase in his career. His new project, The Big Picture, may be his most adventurous to date.

Recommended for ages 13 & up.
