Concert Meister Series (http://www.concertmeister.org), a Baruch Performing Arts Center and Legato Production, presents the prolific
and award winning Resident Composer, Ronn Yedidia and his new world music ensemble, DanzaNova, performing at the Engelman Recital Hall
at the Baruch Performing Arts Center in New York, Friday February 1st
DanzaNova's last Merkin Hall recital was called “…pure ethnic music, which left the audience ecstatic with boundless pleasure!” (Epoch Times)
The virtuosic Klezmerband will be performing originally composed pieces inspired by Latin American, Middle Eastern, and European folk traditions.
Ronn Yedidia is DanzaNova founder and principal composer. His works have been featured in major concert halls and documented on film, radio and television.
Starting his career in Israel as a young prodigy as a student of Pnina Salzman (herself a student of Alfred Cortot) and continuing at
Juilliard, Yedidia has been recognized throughout the world as a leading contemporary composer receiving numerous prizes. He has recorded
with major labels EMI Classics, SonyBMG, and Naxos, and has been commissioned by the world’ leading ensembles.
Ronn Yedidia and the other four members of DanzaNova include Violinist Dmitry Fisch, Guitarist, Giacomo La Vita, Bassist, Eddy Khaimovich and Percussionist Yuval Edoot.
Ronn Yedidia has composed a series of his own works entitled KlezDances especially for DanzaNova. The quintet's emphasis is on
stylistic versatility and chamber unity, and the players display their many creative abilities in segments of original free improvisation ‐ blending
ethnic and contemporary elements, and executing them with idiosyncratic virtuosity. DanzaNova has been featured in such concert venues as
Merkin Hall, Bargemusic, ArtEcho Center, and Watchung Arts Center. A promotion documentary about DanzaNova is now featured on YouTube
