 Re: klezmer repertoire
Author: ChrisC

As opposed to, say, "wow, that sounds Bulgarian"?

Generally, I'm happier with Balkan music leaving an impression of "gypsy music" upon the new listener than klezmer.

Of course, some Greek and Romanian tunes are identical to those found in the klezmer repertoire.

A couple years ago, when I was first getting into this stuff, I met a clarinetist whose passion was Balkan music (didn't play klezmer at all) but regularly played contradances just in order to get out and gig. She told me that contradancers would routinely ask her if she were playing klezmer simply because she was playing contradance tunes...on the clarinet.
