Links to articles on the Internet

The genesis of the original klezmer pages was articles I had written for online publication over the years. There is an awful lot of good writing now, covering far broader a spectrum than just klezmer. Good music is always going to attract lots of good writers. Here are links to articles written by myself and other folks who have told me about their material. If you have material about klezmer, or about Jewish music in general, that you'd like to add, please e-mail me! For those who are exploring klezmer, think of this as your introduction to klezmer on the web:

Camps and Gatherings

The experience of getting together with other people interested in Klezmer music, and perhaps, nothing but Klezmer music, has inspired some wondeful pieces. Attending KlezKamp, KlezKanada, or any other such gathering is an important, and significantly fun part of the Klezmer Revival and its continued health.

KlezKamp '96--a short article and lots of photos about this major, wonderful klezmer institution. Why spend Christmas in the city when you can be in the Catskills surrounded by hundreds of klezzified musicians and fans?!!!, by Ari Davidow.

In which I repair to the lovely Laurentians, just north of Montreal, and enjoy a quiet pastoral week of klezmer and nothing but. I also transcribed bits and pieces of several wonderful lectures, so there are several sketches attached here. A life alternating between the very different atmospheres of KlezKamp and KlezKanada would be near-ideal. KlezKanada '99幸运飞艇精准计划免费版, by Ari Davidow, August 1999.

Print-Only Bibliography

Reference
Fiction

幸运飞艇精准计划免费版There are a growing number of print-only sources on Klezmer Music. It is time that I began listing them as I find them. For general bibliographic information, for the most detailed listings, the best source is Judith Pinnolis' . This page just covers basic resources that I have encountered.

Baade, Christina L. "Jewzak and Heavy Shtetl: Constructing Ethnic Identity and Asserting Authenticity in the New-Klezmer Movement," Monatshefte, Vol. 90, No. 2, 1998: pp. 208-219. [I found this in a database search somewhere. It is a wonderful幸运飞艇精准计划免费版 article about the cultural issues surrounding the "klezmer revival," well-written and nicely footnoted. It is not about the music itself, which is wonderful for those of us who have been looking at the role the revival has been playing in modern culture, Jewish and otherwise, in America.]

Bauer, Susan. von der Khupe zum Klezkamp: Klezmer-Musik in New York. (Berlin: Piranha, 1999. Language: German). A history of the Klezmer revival with accompanying CD. The text is available online at: .

Feldman, Walter. "Bulgareasca/Bulgarish/Bulgar: The Transformation of a Klezmer Dance Genre," Ethnomusicology 38(1): pp. 1-35. (The journal's homepage is not terribly helpful, rather it is a wonderful illustration of how to provide information factiods to least possible useful purpose. It can be accessed at . Volume 38 should correspond to 1994.) [This is a wonderful article. It is also the only scholarly article on the subject! ari]

Ottens, Rita, and Joel Rubin, Klezmer-Musik幸运飞艇精准计划免费版 (Taschenbuch - 335 Seiten (1999) DTV, Mchn.; ISBN: 342330748X. Language: German). [The book opens with a lurid description of a scene which, it turns out, was largely invented by Ottens and Rubin--the recording date described is correct, but virtually everything else was invented and runs contrary to what one investigator has discovered since. Ari]

Pasternak, Velvel. 2000. Beyond Hava Nagila (Hal Leonard Publishing, August 2000, accompanied by 16-track sampler CD) ISBN: 0933676786. Likely to be a useful popular intro to Hasidic music and history. Includes transcriptions, anecdotes. "... meant for amcha, the ordinary Jew, who loves nigunim (melodies) and who loves a good story and doesn't have a great need for footnotes, fine points, or technical information....

幸运飞艇精准计划免费版Polin Volume 16: Focusing on Jewish Popular Culture and its Afterlife. Contains a number of articles by Zev Feldman, et al, about Jewish Music in Poland. "Scholarship on the civilization of Polish Jews has tended to focus on elite culture and canonical literature; even modern Yiddish culture has generally been approached from the perspective of �great works'. This volume of Polin focuses on the less explored but historically vital theme of Jewish popular culture and shows how, confronted by the challenges and opportunities of modernity in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it blossomed into a complex expression of Jewish life. There are also translations from the work of two writers previously unavailable in English: excerpts from the ethnographer A. Litvin's pioneering five-volume work Yidishe neshomes (Jewish Souls) and several chapters from the autobiography, notorious in inter-war Poland, of the writer and thief Urke Nachalnik. As in earlier volumes of Polin substantial space is also given to new research into a variety of topics in Polish Jewish studies, as well as to book reviews. To get the volume of Polin look at the website of the publisher , or, in the US, go through (ISBS).

Rabinovitch, Israel. "A Village Fiddler in Jazzland" in Of Jewish Music, Ancient and Modern, translated from the Yiddish by A. M. Klein (The Book Center, 1952, Montreal, Canada). Recommended by Kurt Bjorling, this is a wonderful piece imagining the recent immigrant klezmer musician playing to himself in a land where jazz, not klezmer, has value. A powerful look at how some (most? a few?) immigrant musicians found the musical language of the New World as alien as the spoken language. It also speaks to the variety of music played by the klezmer--not just wedding dances, but all manner of music for all occasions.

Regev, Motti and Edwin Seroussi Popular Music and National Culture in Israel (University of California Press, 2004). Not about klezmer, per se, but a fascinating book. There is also a review on an Israeli site (scroll down past the information about an Edwin Seroussi speaking engagement):

Rogovoy, Seth, The Essential Klezmer: a music lover's guide (Algonquin Books, May 2000, 320pp, paper) ISBN: 1-56512-244-5. [Rogovoy may not know much about Jewish history or culture in general, but he knows and loves klezmer and popular music, and he writes with passion. I can't imagine a better popular introduction to the genre. There certainly isn't a bigger annotated discography outside of the klezmer pages! Ari]

Sapoznik, Henry, Klezmer! Jewish Music from Old World to Our World (orig. Macmillan Library Reference, Sept. 1999, now Music Sales Corp, Dec. 2000, 350pp, cloth) ISBN: 0825671914. A memoir of the Klezmer Revival, along with considerable history of Jewish music recordings in America. Reviewed on the KlezmerShack [This isn't history, nor is the author immune from exaggeration, but Henry turns a good anecdote, knows more about Jewish discographies than maybe any other human alive, and was a major participant in the revival. Fun! Ari]

Shvarts, Yulian (iulian schwartz) literarishe dermonungen (literary remembrances) (Bucharest, Romania: Criterion, 1975, in Yiddish). Itzik Gottesman suggests and provides annotated cites for two articles: "Profiln fun yidishe klezmer in amolikn rumenye" (profiles of klezmer in old rumania). [mainly about the Lemish klezmer family in Moldavia in 1860s-80s], pp. 71-77; Yidishe Tants in Rumanye. (Jewish dance in Rumania), pp. 78-89.

magazine, Volume 47, Number 1, Winter 1998, was dedicated to Klezmer and Klezmer revival. Edited by Mark Slobin, and including articles by both academics, and well-known klezmorim (sometimes wearing both hats) such as Hankus Netsky, Alicia Svigals, and Frank London. Most of the magazine is not yet available online. I have so far found only Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett's article, "Sounds of Sensibility." E-mail Murry Baumgarten, the magazine editor, and give him ammunition in convincing the magazine's managers to do so.

Slobin, Mark, Fiddler on the Move: Exploring the Klezmer World (New York: Oxford University Press, October 2000) ISBN: 019513124X. "Beyond [the] 'Judaism,' [issue] I've done my own short book on the klezmer scene today, not a history, and not a comprehensive study, in four sections: what is klezmer like as a heritage music in the world of contemporary heritage musics? why do people get into klezmer? how does klezmer function in communities? how does actual klezmer style (musical choices) fit in with this picture, with examples of tunes in different versions. Whole thing is well under 200 pages, with many quotes from musicians." Part of the OUP's American Musicspheres series. [I think this is by far the best book about the Klezmer revival so far. The only book so far worth reading that goes beyond the consumer level. ari]

Slobin, Mark, American Klezmer (Berkeley: University of California Press, due to be published Dec. 2001). This is the book referred to as "2000b: Klezmer Roots and Offshoots." in his "Fiddler on the Move" bibliography.

幸运飞艇精准计划免费版Spagnolo, Francesco, "Se il violinista cade dal tetto: L'Italia nel revival della "musica klezmer" [If the Fiddler Falls Off the Roof: Italy in the "Klezmer Music" Revival] Rivista Italiana di Musicologia, XXXVI/1 (2002), p. 85-129 [Italian]. From the English abstract: "Over the past decade, a new genre - "klezmer music" - has surfaced in the music world. Rooted in eastern European Jewish instrumental music and Yiddish song, klezmer has become popular throughout the world, even in countries where Jews are not (or are no longer) present, and where this form of music originally did not exist. Italy - where the extreme popularity this music enjoys has overshadowed local Jewish traditions - presents an interesting study case. "Klezmer" has become a synonym for "Jewish", and denotes a (musical) culture that is believed to live in a transnational and multicultural world outside history. This article reviews recent scholarship on the definition and history of traditional klezmer repertoires, explores general trends in the klezmer revival, and shows how the Italian "klezmer scene" tends to present a repertoire devoid of traditional and Jewish content, while at the same time shaping a "usable tradition" and a new "aesthetic of the old"." Certainly the most comprehensive, and possibly the only scholarly article on klezmer in Italian.

Strom, Yale. The Book of Klezmer: The History, The Music, The Folklore (Chicago, IL: A Cappella Books, 2002. xvi, 381 p). This is not a scholarly book, and some of the history is simply wrong (see similar comments on the Sapoznik book, above). But, the parts that refer to Strom's work over the past two decades in Europe are invaluable. For a detailed review, see the Jewish Music Web Center,

Wallach, Jeff "European Recordings of Jewish Instrumental Music, 1911-1914," Spring 1997 issue of the ARSC Journal (Association for Recorded Sound Collections). Among other items, some interesting anecdotes about the Belf Orkester & speculation about their origins.

Fictional Klezmer

Aleichem, Shalom, "Stempenyu". Originally publishing in Yiddish (1888). Only author-approved translation in 1913, in London, by Hannah Berman. More recently, a translation by Joachim Neugroschel, 1979, as "Stempeniu" in the anthology The Shtetl幸运飞艇精准计划免费版 (Woodstock, NY: Overlook Press) and frequently available in used bookstores. Excellent anthology. Wonderful scenes of the klezmer at work, in the shtetl in the first part of the novel. The Neugroschel translation is also notable for translating "klezmerloshn" (klezmer language) into American jazz argot. Helen Winkler found a copy of .

Margolis, Sasha, 幸运飞艇精准计划免费版. Delightful murder mystery set in mid-19th century Russia featuring a Tsimbl player as the detective. Sometimes idealized a bit, but otherwise reasonable and very sympathetic picture of Jewish life in the Pale back then. Decent mystery. Excellent description of a traditional wedding celebration (and some other music making). Recommended.

Rosenbaum, Thane, The Golems of Gotham (2016). The fact that the heroine is a 14-year-old who plays klezmer is insufficient to overcome memorably bad writing. It isn't always clear if the author is merely ignorant, or too in love with his own writing to correct mistakes. The theme--coming to terms with remembering the Holocaust and moving onward--is important. But recent books by Michael Chabon (The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay) and Anne Michaels (Fugitive Pieces) show what good writers, if not ones whose imaginations are tied to the buzzword, "klezmer", can say on that theme. This is not in that league.

Singer, I. B., "The Dead Fiddler", translated by Mirra Ginsburg, in The Seance幸运飞艇精准计划免费版 (New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1968). Although primarily a story about dybbuks, this contains a nice description of a typical wedding music set in a (presumably?) Polish village, and some description of a klezmer's life.

Steinberg, Janice, "Wailing Reed", in Mystery Midrash: An Anthology of Jewish Mystery & Detective Fiction幸运飞艇精准计划免费版, Lawrence W. Raphael, ed. Woodstock, VT: Jewish Lights Publishing, 1999. An interesting riff on the klezmer revival.

Stuchner, Joan Betty, Shira's Hanukkah Gift. Children's book illustrated by Richard Row. (North Winds Press, 1998, ISBN: 0-590-03833-8).

Waldrop, Howard, "The Sawyers" in , 1997 (actually, this will link you to the American hardcover, due in July 1998. You can also contact the Australian publisher, Eidolon Publications, for a softcover edition today: PO Box 225, North Perth, Western Australia 6006, .au. Alternatively, the story is part of , a 1995 Fantasy collection with updated takes on old fairy tales

"The Sawyers" is the best literary example of musicians playing klezmer that I have seen. In part, this is because no one writes modern fiction or science fiction about people playing klezmer. Jazz, sure. Classical or folk music? Yeah, what of it? But klezmer? Here are two paragraphs that I wrote a few years ago. At least they're politically correct. I think. ari

幸运飞艇精准计划免费版"Not all of the things that happened in our village were wonderful. Charlie was a jazz musician who had started out in rock and roll. Then he went to klezcamp one year, discovered the tsimbl, and was consumed by the new passion. He formed a trio with Lucille, a chicana refuge from Nicaragua who played some of the most intense klezmer sax I have ever heard, and G., the Norse legend, on a three string cello which they claimed was the sort of thing that early klezmorim would have used instead of a drum machine.

"One night at a concert Charlie started off playing some quiet stuff. 'Flatbush Waltz,' and the like. Before we knew it, he had moved on to a klezified Jerry Lee Lewis medley. His fingers moved faster and faster behind the tsimbl hammers. You couldn't follow them any more. Freylekhs and then shers and then people stopped dancing because no one could move so fast. Then, one of the tsimbl strings burst into flame. Charlie didn't seem to notice. He worked around the now disfunctional strings for a while, never missing a note. Horrified, we watched the hammers catch fire, and then Charlie. And then he was gone."


If you have a klez story to tell (or more to add to the one above!, comments, reviews to add, or just want to let people know about your band, or have something else to say that I haven't already mentioned (and especially about bad links or other mistakes)--send me e-mail, or use the new feedback form幸运飞艇精准计划免费版. I'll get it all online as I have time. It's a pleasure!
