These 19 pieces comprise the entire recorded output under Elenkrig’s name. It’s difficult to describe what makes them so special. Several connoisseurs consider these to be among the great neglected treasures of klezmer music. Many of the tunes are quite simple, but the texture and style of this ensemble give each of them a complex, dark, intense quality.
