Classic Yiddish Klezmer – 1905-1916

Remastering of 78 RPM discs

Compilation of 4 CD made by Dominique Misslin
Release : 30-05-2011

At the turn of the 20th century, hundreds of thusands of Central and East European Jews fled the progroms and misery, and emigrated to the USA. Among them, many musicians find jobs in theatres, cabarets, hotels, cafés, circuses, and later on in cinemas.

Klezmer music flourished as a music for dancing and rejoice, thanks to musicians such as  Abe Schwartz (1881-1963), Harry Kandel (1885-1943), Naftule Brandwein (1889-1963) or  Dave Tarras (1897- 1989).

Having guessed potential financial wealth, the American disc industry got interested in this music since the end of the 19th century. The 26 tunes of this compilation restore a part of this repertoire.
