The Old Yiddish Songs

As he does in his concerts, Karsten Troyke presents the whole spectrum of Jewish music, which is much more than Klezmer: folk songs, political songs, songs from Jewish „Operettas” made in the USA, but also Hebrew songs, Jewish swing and tango – serious or cheerful or even both at the same time.

Troyke is accompanied by his longtime fellow musicians Götz Lindenberg on the piano and Trio Scho who, together, stand for this very special swing.

Press Reviews

„I have hardly ever heard Jewish songs interpreted so charmingly and brilliantly, and, at the same time, without any pathos.
(Jüdische Allgemeine)
