Clarinet virtuoso David Krakauer showcases his new project, The Big Picture, a multimedia production at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Downtown Manhattan.
Accompanied by original films created for this show, this cinematic concert tells Krakauer's story of cultural heritage in an artful marriage of music and the moving image. The clarinetist re-imagines themes from iconic films with Jewish content from the last 50 years.
Krakauer's sextet delves into sensual, soaring, and daring interpretations of the music from movies integral to our collective memories, such as Fiddler on the Roof, Sophie's Choice, Life is Beautiful, Cabaret, The Producers and Funny Girl.
"The Big Picture is a special kind of project," says Krakauer. "It's a tour through Jewish history, and an exploration of how the movies show us the universality of our individual quests. I want this experience to serve as an opportunity for all. I am privileged to be the tour guide for this incredible voyage."

The Museum of Jewish Heritage, overlooking New York Harbor, serves as a compelling location.
The CD will be released nationwide on February 18, but is available as a special pre-sale at all performances.

The concert line up is David Krakauer, clarinet; Rob Schwimmer, piano, various keyboards and theremin; Sara Caswell, violin; Mark Helias, double bass; Sheryl Bailey, guitar; and John Hadfield, drums and percussion.
