A collection of 120 melodies meticulously transcribed from recordings by the masters of the klezmer style, including Dave Tarras, Naftule Brandwine, Abe Schwartz and many more. Written in standard notation for B-flat instruments, this book includes chordal accompaniment, program notes for each piece, and interviews with master klezmer musician Andy Statman and ethnomusicologist Dr. Walter Zev Feldman. The rich cultural origins of this music include Central and Eastern European Jewry, secular folk music, and Western art and popular music. This book contains transcriptions of the same material found in the previously published Klezmer Collection for C Instruments.
