Product Details


“Aneinu!” – Moshe “Moussa” Berlin, Israel’s foremost klezmer clarinetist, plays with his ensemble from the repertoire of the hasidic-orthodox klezmer tradition. The recordings were made by ethnomusicologist Joel Rubin in a yeshiva (a Jewish institution for Torah study and the study of Talmud) during the ceremony celebrating the end of the holiday Simchat Torah. They show the vital role that the music of the “klezmorim” and the ecstatic singing of “nigunim” (melodies of spiritual elevation) play among orthodox Jews, displaying at the same time a microcosm of the variety of ethnic and cultural influences to be found in the musical traditions of Israel today.

This production received the quarterly German Record Critics' Award.

Music of World Cultures
World Music – What Is Distant? What Is Near? World Music is a not uncontroversial term for the rich variety of musical culture of our planet, and it comprises not only the musical traditions of the rural parts of Africa, Asia, and Latin America but also those of the high cultures of the Indian subcontinent, Japan, and China as well as the popular music of urban metropolises throughout the world today. This edition of CDs, most of which were produced in cooperation with Berlin’s House of the Cultures of the World and the Music Department of Berlin’s Ethnological Museum, mixes up the categories of “foreign” and “familiar” not only by bringing closer things that are unknown and unfamiliar but also by revealing the familiar in the foreign and the foreign in the familiar. The encounter with the varied musical ideas that exist outside of our own culture has made us more aware of our own categories and shown us that we can no longer operate with a single compulsory aesthetic but that we must instead speak of innumerable distinctive aesthetics. This conclusion is supported both by the extraordinary recordings and the high quality of the booklet texts on the WELTMUSIK label.
