Presenting old traditional sounds in a new guise: MORITZ WEIß KLEZMER TRIO aka Moritz Weiß (clarinet, bass clarinet, vocals) and his colleagues Niki Waltersdorfer (guitar, percussion, vocals) and Maximilian Kreuzer (double bass, vocals) present their own take on Klezmer music by developing it further and retelling it in a wonderful new musical language. Founded in 2015, this virtuosic trio bridges the gap between past and present, incorporating many musical forms and styles from other epochs, while always giving a respectful nod to the Jewish music tradition. The sophisticated pieces of Moritz Weiß Klezmer Trio are loaded with energy and artfully multi-layered with elements from various other genres, such as jazz and classical music. Moritz Weiß Klezmer Trio was chosen to be NASOM act 2020/21.
