Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This volume collects materials around the work of Moshe Beregovski, the foremost ethnomusicologist of traditional East European Jewish music. A companion volume to the 1982 anthology (recently reprinted by Syracuse University Press), it presents a translation of Beregovski's unpublished book manuscript on the klezmer music of East European Jews, as well as sections of musical scores of short and extended musical selections, and a brief inventory of opening phrases. The included CD contains tunes recorded on 78 rpms, as well as some that have been recently used and newly commissioned. Contains many b&w photographs and reproductions of illustrations of Jewish musicians participating at various occasions. Lacks an index. Translated and edited by Slobin (music, Wesleyan U.), Robert A. Rothstein (Slavic and Judaic studies, U. of Massachusetts), and Michael Albert (Jewish music scholar). Contains a foreword by Izaly Zemsovsky, who has been involved with several academic departments in the Soviet Union and the U.S.

Synopsis:

A unique and unparalleled collection of klezmer music that contributes to our understanding of a musical and cultural movement that have become widely appreciated and emulated across the world today.

Moshe Beregovski's collection of klezmer tunes is the only such treasury collected under expert fieldwork conditions before World War II. It represents the full range of melodies dating back to the late nineteenth century as played by surviving musicians in Stalinist times in the Ukraine.

The introduction is the best single essay available on early twentieth century klezmer lifestyle and performance practice. This first English-language edition includes sheet music and extensive annotation by Michael Alpert, a pioneer klezmer researcher, and contains tunes not previously available in print, as well as an appreciation of Beregovski by Russian scholar Izaly Zemtsovsky.
