Dear friends!


Good news:


This autumn and winter, I'll perform in several cities and countries where I have never performed before, namely:


1. On November 20, I will hold a one-day workshop on Yiddish music and dance "Brixia Shpilt Klezmer" in the birthplace of my violin, in the Italian city of Brescia.


2. On December 22, together with my project Hamburg Klezmer Band, I will perform for the first time in Turkey, namely at the Izmir Sephardic Culture Festival.

Hope to see you there!

Dear friends!


On February 24 of this year, Russia, the country in which I was born, committed a terrible crime, vilely and without the slightest reason, attacking a neighboring democratic state, Ukraine.

Being (so far) a citizen of Russia, I can't and don't want to remain silent. I am against the criminal war unleashed by Vladimir Putin and Russia against Ukraine. I stand with Ukraine.
