On their recently released debut album 'Isgrelaje', RADA synergica from Leipzig play a refreshing mixture of Klezmer and Eastern European pieces. The three musicians excel on their partly genre-untypical instruments, which include piano, accordion, clarinet and cello. On their first CD the trio plays mainly traditional Jewish pieces. But also traditional pieces from Romania and Bulgaria can be found on the album.
Ein eben solches ist das Titelstück ›Isgrelaje‹ bei dem die Band nur mit mehrstimmigem Acapella-Gesang eine wahre Gänsehaut-Atmosphäre schafft.
It continues cheerfully with 'Standpiraten', an instrumental in that certainly leaves not a foot still. With 'Od lo ahawti dai' the trio has recorded a beautiful piece by the Israeli songwriter Naomi Shemer.
It continues with Bulgarian Traditionals, a Yiddish protest song from the beginning of the 19th century ('Daloj Politsej') and famous pieces like 'Du sollst nischt geyn'.
An impressive album, which I hereby recommend to every Klezmer fan. In any case, I was completely thrilled by it!
