This volume offers all the material you need for authentic performances of new and familiar pieces.
Henner Diederich, professor of folk music and arrangement at the Cologne Musikhochschule, has gained a reputation with his numerous publications, particularly in the field of klezmer music.
It presents twelve klezmer arrangements for variable ensembles: the melody, the counter-melody, the guitar chords and the bass line.
The twelve pieces are arranged for open notation, ie you can choose the instruments, add octave doublings, remove the vocal lines or improvise your own ideas according to your taste.
They offer a glimpse into the typically sour and sweet melody and harmony of Yiddish music, which emerged from a mix of Yidish, Slavic, Romanian and German stylistic elements and is currently undergoing a revival in the scene of folk music.
