Beregovski at the 2018 KlezKanada festival
The work of Ukrainian-Jewish ethnomusicologist Moyshe Beregovksi (1892-1961) was featured in 2018’s UJE-supported KlezKanada festival. Beregovksi was among the first to indicate similarities in melody and means of expression in Ukrainian and Jewish folk music.
The world-renowned klezmer violinist Alicia Svigals honoured his work by performing a concert of Jewish and Ukrainian music entitled “Beregovski Suite”.
Below is a video report about the festival, and a wonderful musical performance of Beregovski’s work.
