Clarinetist discusses Paris attacks ahead of Bay Area concerts
David Krakauer, the blazing clarinetist whose klezmer-based music is suffused with the sounds of Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet while naturally flavored with funk, classical minimalism and hip-hop, was sitting in his Paris hotel room Nov. 20 — a week after the terrorist attacks — telling his Facebook readers that his show the next night at La Cigale, the famed concert hall in the Pigalle district, was being canceled because of security concerns.
The clarinetist wanted deeply to play for French audiences last month because “I feel there’s a way that we as artists need to react.”
The quote was posted online the day after the Paris attacks by Selmer, the storied instrument maker whose Parisian clarinet shop is a block from restaurants where people were slaughtered.
