Klezmer music originated in the "'shtetl" (villages) and the ghettos of Eastern Europe, where itinerant Jewish troubadours, known as "klezmorim," had performed at celebrations, particularly weddings, since the early Middle Ages. Three Klezmer Miniatures uses the following traditional tunes: 1. Sham Harei Golan (There are the mountains of Golan) and Nigun Shel Yossi, a circle dance. 2. Tumbalalaika, a Russian Jewish love song. 3. Hava Nagila, perhaps the most famous of all Jewish folk dances; the title means "let us rejoice." Bring the spirit of Klezmer to your next concert with this exciting piece. Dur: 7:00.
