The Essential Klezmer
Regular price $15.95
This book offers an insightful look into klezmer, the music form that originated in Jewish communities of medieval Eastern Europe. Klezmer can almost be described as the merging of two worlds, sonically combining Old World and New World, the secular and the sacred. This book also brings an in-depth look at the social, cultural, and political roots of the form, as well as providing vivid descriptions of instruments and their sounds and the players who brought them to life.
This book also includes a comprehensive discography, inclusive of recordings, artists, styles, music retailers, festivals, workshops, and web resources.
