Series: None Publisher: de haske Format: Softcover w/ CD Composer: Various Arrangers: Michiel Ockeloen Level: Beginner to Intermediate
The Collection All Time Klezmers has been inspired by the beautiful Jewish dances and songs of the klezmorim. The slow Hora, the fast Sher, the delicate Nigun and the compelling Freilack: all pieces originate in old Jewish music from Eastern Europe that was played at weddings and parties. Also audible is the influence of the more recent Israeli folk music as spread by, among others, Giora Feidman and oriental melodic patterns.
On the CD there are complete versions as well as play along versions of all pieces, played live by genuine klezmer musicians in an authentic klezmer line-up. the musicians occasionally take the liberty of embellishing the melodies, which is perfectly in keeping with the klezmer style. The CD is a useful tool for rehearsal at home, but the great accompaniment is also ideal for use during performances.
