Upcoming shows

Now that the release schedule of “Discontent Farm” is behind me, it’s time to get back to get back to posting about my favorite subject — upcoming live shows!

Here is what’s coming up shortly —

O Hannukeh, Hannukeh! / arr. Ljova

Happy Hannukah (Khanike, Hannukeh, Chanukah, חנוכה, Ханука) to all of my Jewish friends! May we shine extra bright this year!

Here’s a video from last December of my arrangement of the Yiddish song “O, Hannukeh, Hannukeh”, with two superstars, Michael Nicolas on cello and Nick Revel on viola — and me, Ljova – on fadolín.

Shtetl Portrait

“Shtetl Portrait” was the first piece that came out of this beautiful fadolín, at the house of its maker, Alexander Tulchinsky, in Connecticut, in early February of 2022. I often play “Shtetl Portrait” as a warmup while practicing. It’s quiet and tender, and takes advantage of the fadolín range in a non-flashy way. I hope that you’ll enjoy it, too!
