<![CDATA[Klezfest: Album Launch “Chekhov’s Band”]]> 20/08/2015 – ]]> 20/08/2015 :



For more than one-hundred years the recordings on this CD had lain forgotten and unheard in the EMI archives. Until their rediscovery, there was little idea of how a typical pre-first world war Eastern European Klezmer band actually sounded. What we knew was based on recordings made at a later date in the USA by recent immigrants.

Celebrate the ground breaking release of these extraordinary early recordings, which rewrite the story of Jewish instrumental music. Their exuberance and life affirming feeling allow us a glimpse into a world that has completely vanished.

The recordings in this compilation cover all aspects of Jewish life, from Zionism to Syphilis, Cossacks and pogroms, some religion but a lot of dancing and fun on the way.

This event is organised by the Jewish Music Institute as part of Klezfest 2015.

Book via the Jewish Museum Institute
