How do you get the Ashkenazi Jewish sound into your instrument? What are the actual techniques to bring this elusive element into your playing? It’s not enough just to play Jewish tunes, you must make it sound evocative and familiar to your listeners. Although this workshop is best suited for string players, all are welcome, as we will explore general techniques of producing this sound.
Cookie Segelstein has toured the world with her trio “Veretski Pass” that specializes in the 19th and 20th Century Jewish instrumental folk music of the Carpathian mountains. She recorded the violin music for the Jewish wedding episode of HBO’s “Sex and the City” and has written many music books of historical transcriptions.
