(p.1) Introduction
American Klezmer

Mark Solbin

University of California Press

This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to suggest the full range and scope of modern klezmer studies by allowing a variety of voices to be heard. Most of the contributions to this volume began at the first Klezmer Research Conference, held at Wesleyan University in 1996. The intent is to clarify klezmer as a set of “roots and offshoots,” dividing the articles into two overlapping parts. The discussion then turns to the canon, history, and appeal of klezmer.

Keywords:   klezmer, Klezmer Research Conference, musical history, canon
