Product Notes

Ari Davidow, the author of the 'KlezmerShack' on visiting Moshe (Moussa) Berlin in his home in Israel: 'Moshe Berlin is one of the leading klezmer clarinetists in Israel and around the world. He taught Giora Feidman and an entire generation of clarinetists in Israel'. While not a formally trained musicologist, Davidow has done some of the finest field work in the last ten years in the area of klezmer music. 'I have long believed that one should never dress up the blues in a tuxedo. The sweetness of this album belies that claim, as Mousa Berlin takes a wedding suite of tunes from a variety of sources, hasidic, other Israeli traditions, and contemporary, and sets them in a carefully-crafted, exquisite jewel of an album. From the opening track, to joyously sweet numbers such as 'The Four Gates,' Berlin's intent here is clearly not simply to present another klezmer album. Instead, in the liner notes, he writes about how the wedding, itself, is a time of both reality and mysticism, a time when G-d is said to grant special favor to His creations. These are, as the album title suggests, nigunim for the beginning of the journey that two people just married now undertake. Don't worry, however. It isn't as though Berlin doesn't let go, as on the title track or 'Medley of Joyous Nigunim', and show why he is regarded as Israel's premier klezmer clarinetist. To confirm that reputation, the album concludes with some stunning live tracks.'
