Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Klezmer Conservatory Band is the driving force in the revival of klezmer music, the jazzy Yiddish sound that originated in Eastern Europe and flourished in the U.S. in the early decades of this century. This infectious holiday album includes new and old music, and reminiscences by elder immigrants who tell stories of the joy and music of Chanukah.

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Oy Chanukah! is vigorously entertaining and always instructive, with lively musical pieces interspersed with stories and explanations of Chanukah traditions and memories from a host of sources. And as the liner notes illustrate, the expression "oy!"--like klezmer music itself--can be "a lament, a protest, a cry of dismay, a reflex of delight." Here the Klezmer Conservatory preserves the singular beauty and breadth of Jewish culture and Yiddish expression associated with the festive holy days of Chanukah. Highly recommended. --Martin Keller

Oy Chanukah! is heard throughout our home before Thanksgiving and continues for a month. It is filled with joyful celebratory music, wonderful stories and thrilling Klezmer. Anyone wishing to relive the story of Chanukah as well as learn how it was celebrated in the shtetels of Europe will enjoy this tape. It is a great gift for a child as well as an adult. I am thrilled from hearing the first Klezmer notes to the last moving poem.

Format: Audio CD
This tape was a Chanukah gift (what else?) from my sister some years ago, and has livened our Chanukah parties every year since. There is nothing better than eating latkes and playing dreidel than eating latkes, playing dreidel and letting the soulful klezmer clarinets wind their way into your heart.

The tape includes a beautiful rendition of the Chanukah blessings, with a grandfather and grandson singing together. Between musical cuts, you will also hear a few stories of Chanukah in Eastern Europe, before the War--about lighting candles, making latkes, and celebrating in the shtetls. By now the elderly story-tellers may be gone, making these cuts the more important.

Some music, like Chanukah, Chanukah, is quite traditional. But you will also be treated to the chants of Chasidim, and the stories and songs of the Chanukah heroes and heroines.

When the stories and blessings are done, ask your children to put on their dancing shoes. You will love the Conservatory Band's special holiday tape.

This is a very enjoyable recording that fits together very well, the music and the storytelling (life in the shtetls of Eastern Europe in the early 20th century) and the other dialogue -be it philosophical or a latke recipe- interspersed and blending all together.I'm very glad I purchased this CD ... it's Spring now and it keeps making its way back into the CD carousel. It's a warm recording.
