Klezmer!: Jewish Music from Old World to Our World
Henry Sapoznik (au). Yiddish-speaking Jewish musicians in Eastern Europe, known as Klezmorim, eked out a living by providing music for rituals, ceremonies, dancing, & celebrations. But when they emigrated to America, the chance for survival of their tradition seemed grim. The forces of assimilation led many musicians to work in classical, jazz, & pop, while others blended the Yiddish stylings & sounds with more contemporary music. In 1976 Sapoznik traced the roots of Klezmer. He unearthed antique 78s & sheet music; found discs of radio programs; & championed the last generation of old-time klezmer musicians. “A fascinating story of survival against all odds, of a musical legacy so potent it can still be heard, despite assimilation & near annihilation.” Illustrations.
