Michael Alpert and Julian Kytasty: Night Songs from a Neighbouring Village
September 6, 2010

Heirs to the legacy of folk bards innumerable and informed by the spirit of Bártok, Kodály, Stravinsky and other modernist national composers, Michael Alpert and Julian Kytasty continue to enrich their heritage musics with new compositions and arrangements that merge tradition and innovation. We draw sustenance from the deep wellsprings of Ukrainian folk and liturgical song, the virtuosic art of the bandura (Ukrainian lute-harp), and three Jewish musical genres that reached their greatest European flowering on the soil of Ukraine: klezmer music, Yiddish folk song and the music of the Hasidic world. Along with the Jewish cantorial tradition, these three great art forms of the Yiddish world have nourished each other while interacting closely with the diverse musical styles of non-Jewish neighbors. Night Songs continues that interaction in the present day thru music, personal tale and commentary, and multimedia projection. Featuring Michael Alpert (vocals, violin, accordion) and Julian Kytasty (Banduras, Voice, Sopilka).
