Event description
Help us kick off a new year of Third Sunday Concerts with a blend of music from the Old Country, with roots in the Ottoman Empire!

About this Event

Taking its name from the mountain pass through which Magyar tribes crossed into the Carpathian basin to settle what later became the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Veretski Pass offers a unique and exciting combination of virtuosic musicianship and raw energy that has excited concertgoers across the world.

The trio plays Old Country Music with origins in the Ottoman Empire, once fabled as the borderlands of the East and the West. In a true collage of Carpathian, Jewish, Rumanian and Ottoman styles, typical suites contain dances from Moldavia and Bessarabia; Jewish melodies from Poland and Rumania; Hutzul wedding music from Carpathian-Ruthenia; and haunting Rebetic aires from Smyrna, seamlessly integrated with original compositions. Their CDs have repeatedly been on the 10-best recording lists of journalists since 2002.

Join Cookie Segelstein, (violin and viola), Stuart Brotman, (bass, basy [cello], tilinca [shepherds’ flute] and baraban [bass drum]), and Joshua Horowitz (chromatic button accordion, cimbalom and piano) for a lively and beautiful musical afternoon.
