Woodwind Quintet - flute, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon. A Klezmer Wedding is a set of four dances, newly-composed but based on traditional models.The Doina is an expressive chant for three successive soloists; it twists and turns with the wailing lament of a shepherd´s pipe. Next follows the Hora, a slow Rumanian dance in three with a mood that reflects the wedding´s solemn vows. A Chusidl, with a moderate speed and bouncy rhythms, gets the party to the dance floor. The concluding Freylach (happy, but still in a minor key!) takes the bride, groom, and guests to the edge of frenzy.
