These arrangements are based on recordings from between 1910 and 1940 of Eastern European immigrant musicians who played traditional Jewish dance music for weddings and other celebrations. Many of these pieces were transcribed to help teach klezmer styling to participants of the biennial Midwest klezmer workshop. The arrangements have been prepared to accommodate different ensemble instrumentation, with many parts partially or completely doubling each other. The score edition includes a full performance CD of all 10 tracks.
