Jiddisch Music / Klezmer, a synonym for vitality and diversity.
This new series 'Sol Sain - Jiddische Musik in Deutschland und ihre Einflüsse' collection is unparalleled in many ways. The 12-CD anthology presents more than 240 recordings and is telling the whole story of post-war Jiddisch music / Klezmer. In the 1960s, Jiddisch songs were discovered by the folk music movement. Later, the American Klezmer revival had a strong impact on the music, and today's colourful Klezmer music scene has become an essential part of contemporary world music. This anthology also contains previously unreleased live recordings by popular US American bands, made in Germany (The Klezmorim, Kapelye, Andy Statman Orchestra, Brave Old World).
Next to rare or even thought-to-be lost recordings, this set is offering surprising interpretations featuring musicians from all over the world, performing in Germany. 'Jiddisch Music in Germany' is providing evidence of the international Klezmer scene's playfulness, development and its strong influence on German bands and musicians. When Klezmer music became popular in Germany, the ground was prepared for the musical development and the revival of important groups like Brave Old World and The Klezmatics.
This collection was compiled and annotated by three Klezmer scene specialists:
Dr. Alan Bern, one of today's leading Jiddisch music composers and performers, who was initial in influencing the Klezmer revival in the USA;
Heiko Lehmann, musician and founding member of 'Aufwind':
Dr. Bertram Nickolay who has initiated countless Jiddish culture projects.
'Jiddisch Music in Germany' comes in four digipack sets containing three CDs each, accompanied by full-color booklets of more than 100 pages.
Liner notes, biographies, recording and release information are written in German.
