In recent years, the clarinet has emerged as the contemporary-music instrument par excellence. As we hear on this edition of New Sounds, one of its leading practitioners is David Krakauer, whose Klezmer Madness! group is a high-concept remake of the pre-second world war klezmer tradition. Others include Evan Ziporyn, who hails from the Bang on a Can All-Stars, Chris Speed, who heads the band Pachora, a Balkan-influenced band with three recordings on Knitting Factory Records; and Oscar Noriega, who specializes in a bass clarinet style that combines cutting edge jazz with funky Latin forms.
