In response to many requests for a simplified version of his highly acclaimed "Klezmer Collection", Stacy Phillips has compiled a selection of pieces for beginning instrumentalists from that classic book. Klezmer music originally came from the Jewish ghettoes of Eastern Europe of the 19th and early 20th Centuries. The style reflects its mix of heritages from Europe, Near East and Gypsy. These arrangements are based on some of the earliest classic recordings in Europe and America. As such, they are a great introduction to this music which is now a world-wide phenomenon. Each number is arranged for C, Bb, Eb and bass clef instruments. Brass, reed, piano, flute, and string players can receive instant gratification from these entry level arrangements. The accompanying CD demonstrates ensemble versions of all the music, performed at slow tempos, by world class Klezmer artists on clarinet, violin, guitar and bass.

  • March 12, 2009 A wonderful introduction to Klezmer music

    I'm not familiar with Klezmer music at all and found this a wonderful introduction. The cd is great to just listen to in the car and has given me a good idea of the Klezmer style - which I love! The tunes in the book are grouped and I could...

    play some of the slowish ones straight away but will have to spend a lot more practice time on the faster tunes. The only complaint is that the book would be easier to use if it was spiral bound. Overall though - my money was very well spent!

  • March 06, 2009 There is easy and too easy

    The problem with generic scoring for multiple instruments is it lacks the depth of a score dedicated to the fiddle such as deHaske's Play Klezmer. Useful for someone (like me) with limited experience in the genre of Klezmer--for immersion We can then seek out fleshed out scores for...

    the pieces we like. So bought it anyway knowing the scoring would be of the 'fake book' type.

  • August 13, 2008 NICE BUT TOO SHORT

    I LIKE THE CD MUSIC BUT ENDED IT TOO QUICKLY. THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN AT LEAST A COUPLE OF REPEATS SO BACKGROUND COULD BE USED PROFESSIONALLY.

  • February 28, 2008 Inspiring!

    This collection of pieces is very nice to play even though the printed music just shows the basic melody line in different clefs in comparison to the full performance on the CD with a full band and all kind of instrumental effects and colors. The CD is not an accompaniment...

    as much as it is a performance of the music on different instruments; it’s very beautiful though and very inspiring. The downside with most of Mel Bay publications is the binding; it is really NOT done for sheet music; it’s just hell making this book stand on a music stand unless you have 2 hands to hold the book and 2 hands to play your instrument.
