An Introduction to Klezmer – Chris Haigh

Klezmer is the thrilling, exotic, and evocative music dance music of the Ashkenazi Jewish population of Eastern Europe. In this workshop I will introduce you to some of the elements which give it this character. We will look at some of the ornamentation which gives the “Yiddish accent” to this music- the krekhts, the downward glissando, the vibrato trill, the “long bent note” and the ghost harmonics. We will look at four different scales or modes which give it a distinctly different feel to western European folk music; these are the Freygish, the Mi Sheberakh , the Adonoi Molokh, and the Mogen Ovos. For each of these we will try a different tune in that particular mode.
