FINJAN RETURNS: UPCOMING WSO CONCERT ON NOV 26 TO FEATURE INFECTIOUS KLEZMER MUSIC AND ROBINOVITCH'S KLEZMER SUITE

by Rhonda Spivak, November 13, 2016

 

Canada's first Klezmer group, Finjan will  return to play with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra [WSO] on November 26  at the Concert Hall in what promises to be an unforgettable evening of infectious music and entertainment.

 

"It's been a long time since we performed  with the  WSO. It was with the WSO that we first premiered Sid Robinovitch’s Suite for Klezmer Band and Orchestra, which Finjan commissioned and first performed in the 1990's, and which is on the program for our  upcoming Nov 26 concert, " says Kinsey Posen, who sings and plays bass in Finjan. 

 

 

 

"Robinovitch's work is really  a beautiful piece of music which shows off the orchestra and our band," he adds. “It’s full of fun, emotion and the symphony players enjoy playing it as well.” “There are a lot smiles all around.”

 

 

Finjan recorded  Suite for Klezmer Band and Orchestra in 2001 and it won a Western Canada Music Award for Best Classical Recording. "Finjan went on to perform it with orchestras throughout North America," Posen says..

 

The program for the upcoming WSO concert includes also traditional klezmer works such as  Roumania, Ot Ot,  S’vivon, sov, sov, sov, Bukovinska Polka, Kolamenka
