Eastern European Dance Music for String Quartet: Klezzified
Composed by Mimi Rabson
Klezmer music, popularized as a genre in the 20th century but with roots that go back 500 years, is the celebratory music of the Eastern European Jews. “Klezzified” is an original composition, a medley of two klezmer-style tunes. The first is a Romanian-style hora. It is in 3/4, but it is not a waltz—the third beat is long and heavy and finds its resolution on the next downbeat. Some klezmer bands lengthen the third beat a bit to give it more emphasis.
