Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Scholar and musician Sapoznik (The Complete Klezmer) gives us the first complete history of the Jewish band music known as klezmer. Beginning in early 19th-century PolandAwith a profile of Michael Joseph Gusikov, the grandfather of modern klezmer musicASapoznik tracks its musical and cultural history in 19th-century Europe and 20th-century America. He shows how klezmer was influenced, in the United States, by such factors as bluegrass, swing, jazz, theater, music publishing, radio, and recording. He also highlights the contributions of such prominent musicians as George Gershwin, Paul Robeson, and Itzhak Perlman, all of whom had ties to klezmer. This is a laudable, important contribution to the history of Jewish musicAand since klezmer is gaining in popularity today (paralleling a renewed interest in Yiddish culture), patrons interested in music or Jewish culture are likely to seek this book out.

Format: Hardcover
Mr. Sapoznik not only does an enviable job of painstakingly researching the history of Klezmer and its players, but brings his unique voice to telling the tale without placing himself above the remarkable story. This is not just a history of Jewish music, but the history of the American record industry and the birth of "popular" music as we know it today, recorded music in the hands of the average listener. Above all Mr. Sapoznik takes us on his own journey - influential names in Klezmer turn out to be members of his own family - and his expertise is a heritage well-lived. An absorbing subject and a wonderful book. Even if you know nothing about this music you owe it to yourself to read it.

A delightful and informative romp through the footstomping, handclapping world of Klezmer music that's perfect for both experts and novices -- you don't have to be Jewish to enjoy klezmer and this book! Mazal Tov Henry Sapoznik!
