The Leonora Ensemble is a string quartet that plays Jewish music in a classical idiom. A professional classical string quartet, they have a significant Jewish repertoire.
The Leonora Ensemble under the musical directorship of Janet Silverton, is classically trained and its repertoire includes substantial Jewish/Yiddish arrangements for trio and string quartet with the option of flute.
The Leonora Ensemble is quite unique in this field, as it is not a 'Klezmer band' but a classical group that also performs authentic Jewish repertoire in the classical idiom.
This CD of Jewish music performed by the string quartet called 'CLASSIC STRING SIMCHA', features a range of music that includes arrangements of Yiddish, Israeli and popular Jewish tunes.
