pn at the Edge," which merges Feldman's violin
sounds with the piano style of wife Sylvie
Courvoisier, begins 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, at the
Kerrytown Concert House.
"Sylvie and I are going to play our own composi-
tions with some improvisations," says Feldman, 48,
married for three years to the Swiss-born key-
boardist. "We've done many concerts together in
Europe and New York."
The couple, who met while both were working
for German radio, regularly appear as part of a trio,
Abaton, which includes cellist Erik Friedlander.
Their recent CD goes by the group name.
"I like ja77 because its more about the player than
the instrument," says the violinist, who has taken
private instrumental lessons but considers himself
Feldman brings a range of experience to record-
ings, which number about 300. He has performed
in various styles of jar" and country and worked
with many stars, including Sheryl Crow, Diana Ross
and Willie Nelson.
He feels that his Jewish roots have been expressed
through recordings with John Zorn on the Tzadik
label and during an earlier Ann Arbor concert, when
he performed klezmer as part of the quartet Charms
of the Night Sky.
"I favor the European concept of music, which
has hybrid sounds," says Feldman, named several
times as "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" in
the critics' polls of Down Beat magazine.
"I also like to combine a high level of solo classical
violin with improvisation."
