Klezmer! Jewish Music from Old World to Our World

by

Klezmer! Jewish Music from Old World to Our World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In his quest to trace the roots of klezmer, the traditional instrumental music of Yiddish-speaking Jews, author Henry Sapoznik unearthed antique 78s, sheet music, and newspaper clippings; found rare discus of long-forgotten radio programs; and most important of all, rediscovered and championed the last generation of old-time klezmer musicians, bringing their musical styles to a new audience. Klezmer is a fascinating story of survival against all odds, of a musical legacy so potent it can still be heard, despite assimilation and near annihilation. This expanded second edition also includes a CD of klezmer music from Shanachie Entertainment, and features music from Dave Tarras, Andy Statman, Naftule Brandwein, The Klezmatics, and others.
