EUROPEAN KLEZMER MUSIC:
Khevrisa

One in the Smithsonian Folkways series

Artist: Various

This is the first modern studio recording of the klezmer music of Europe, performed with the original European instrumentation - first violin, cimbal (hammer dulcimer), sekund (contra-fiddle), and bass. Half of these compositions were recorded here for the first time. This CD features haunting instrumentals by the great klezmer composers of the 19th century, such as Mikhl Guzikow and Avram Moyshe Kholodenko. The Khevrisa ensemble is led by Steven Greenman (violin) and Zev Feldman (cimbal ), and includes some of the finest musicians of the contemporary klezmer revival - Alicia Svigals (sekund), Michael Alpert (sekund), and Stuart Brotman (bass). 36-page booklet contains extensive notes, bibliography, glossary. 70 minutes.

"…It (Khevrisa: European Klezmer Music) is an essential album if one wants to understand where klezmer music comes from."
-Jewish Herald Voice, Jewish Jukebox

"…The passion of Khevrisa shines through in impassioned playing that illuminates an otherwise underlit piece of the past."
-Sonicnet.com

With every purchase comes documentation that explains not just the sounds but their circumstances -- their who, what, when and why.

Many of the CDs are not accompanied by the originial album cover as some of them are produced only one or two copies at a time and the covers are not as readily reproducible.
