Klezmer music is highly popular with clarinettists and audiences alike.
This volume gathers together eleven Yiddish melodies with the typical, slightly melancholy klezmer touch.
The impact is all the greater when they are played by three clarinets, enriching the harmonies and enlivening the overall effect. All three parts are of equal – easy – technical difficulty so that the three players can choose and master any part they wish. The more ambitious players are free to play ornamentations, embellishments and improvised solos typical of the klezmer style.
