Klezmer and Sephardic Tunes
This new addition to the Schott World Music series presents 33 beautiful pieces ranging from well known traditional tunes to the newly composed. The collection is ideal for those looking to explore Klezmer music in more depth, as well as the lesser known music of the Sephardic Jews- drawing on the culture’s roots in Medieval Spain and the Balkans.
The book contains notes on all of the pieces as well as points on general interpretation, and is accompanied by a CD with all pieces performed by Merima Ključo. German and French translations of all texts are available as free pdf downloads from the Schott Music website. Suitable for players of grades 3-8.
