Noten HalvaWith his international ensemble HALVA, Nicolaas Cottenie investigates the links between traditional Yiddish music and the music of the many cultures surrounding the Ashkenazim (the Yiddish-speaking Jews in Eastern-Europe): Greek, Hungarian, Turkish, Rumanian, Middle Eastern and Western Classical Music. Cottenie's original, surprising and expressive compositions push the boundaries of sound and genre.
The “Halva Scorebook” is a collection of 23 compositions that Halva presented on the two albums “The Sweetest Klezmer Orchestra” (2019) and “Dinner In Sofia” (DANZ114, 2021).
