Various Artists & Itzhak Perlman - Klezmer In The Fiddler's House

"In the Fiddler's House" is a collection of traditional klezmer music performed by the acclaimed violinist Itzhak Perlman. Perlman captures the careening, infectious spirit of klezmer with style and grace, making "In the Fiddler's House" an intoxicating listen.

Klezmer is the celebration music of Eastern European Jews around the world. Reflecting the interplay of dance tunes, folk songs and liturgical music in the diverse Yiddish-speaking culture that flourished in Eastern Europe from the Baltic to the Black Sea until 1939, it also resonates with the influences of Romanian, Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, Greek, Turkish, Hungarian and Roma (Gypsy) musical art. Carried to the shores of Norht America and throughout the globe by the waves of Jewish immigrants who left the Old World in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Klezmer music has survived Hitler and Stalin, oppression and assimilation. Since the mid-1970s it has been enjoying international renaissance and has taken its place on the world stage today.
Itzhak Perlman takes a break from the concert hall to explore the remarkable burst of vitality in contemporary Klezmer music. 

In his introductory note to this album, Itzhak Perlman informs us that, more than anything else he has recorded, this is truly his own music - "what you might hear if you came to my house and I decided to jam with some friends." And jam he does - with some very talented friends indeed. Klezmer music, which combines the folk and religious music of Yiddish-speaking cultures with various musical traditions of countries such as Russia, Turkey, and Greece, is unusual territory for a major label and a superstar artist, but here the combination works perfectly. Perlman, who normally is the star of his recordings, just blends into the whole celebration. The playing of violin, accordion, mandolin, clarinet, and other instruments is stylish, infectious, and at times virtuosic.
