Lecture & discussion: 'Skotshne', with Dr Walter Zev Feldman
23 Feb 2022
What is a Skotshne? Is it a genre in its own right or a catch-all term encompassing dance, non-dance and other forms? Dr Walter Zev Feldman, Artistic Director of the Klezmer Institute, sees the skotshne as a key to understanding much of the core klezmer repertoire. In this session he tackled the thorny questions and expanded on the chapter in his iconic work 'Klezmer: Music, History and Memory' (OUP, 2016) with plenty of recorded, written and live musical examples.
