ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This record is of historic klezmer and social music from pre-war Jewish Poland. FleytMuzik represents an ensemble that carries on an earlier tradition of klezmer that featured flute and piccolo with strings rather than clarinet or brass. We also feature National Heritage scholar and musician, Michael Alpert who gives us special rhyming badkones for our wedding "set." Each piece, each track, provides a fresh look at history, with tunes that are at once lively and soulful. No other ensemble exists that performs this music and performs with historical intent. Yet, it will remain in your recording library both as a constant playback and as a reminder of history in the making. Oginski Polonaise is the feature work: Farewell to the Homeland
“As she played one spine-chilling tune after another I realized that I had been honored with a private command solo performance by the World’s Greatest Klezmer Flutist. Her being responsible in such a great part to put the flute back into klezmer, where it belongs, is such a major contribution to music and to flute playing”. Peter Standaart, Wesleyan University

Informative liner notes are included in the CD that explains each title/track and the history of this music and the Frand Klezmorim.

REVIEW !:
Adrianne Greenbaum is one of the more special klezmorim making music today. A flautist who seems to mostly play these wonderful, muscular old-fashioned wooden flutes, she has changed my awareness of what flute music is. And, as the primary flautist playing Jewish music, she has opened doors around the world. In this new recording, her first in years, she gladdens hearts musically, and helps preserve the repertoire of the Frand family, musicians from Dubiecko, Poland

Sharon Frant Brooks reached out to the klezmer community several years ago with transcriptions she had preserved from her great-grandfather's band. I had the privilege of passing the material on to some musicians. Brooks reached Greenbaum directly. As Adrianne puts it in the liner notes, "seeing that this klezmer band was made up of strings and flute, I answered the call." The rest is beauty.

There was an original all-star concert in New Jersey, and then, incredibly, at the cemetery in Dubiecko. This CD represents a more recent concert, featuring an all-star band, back in Highland Park, NJ, including Michael Alpert, who not only contributes his fiddle playing, but his badkhones,. This is not your bubbe's flute music. Or, perhaps more true, this is your bubbe's flute music—not the more familiar metallic flute we are more used to hearing today. The music is also an older klezmer, representing not just familiar, Jewish sounding tunes, but a wide variety of popular music (e.g., "Chaskel's Caledonia Polka," "Gitel Sara's Waltz" and Sobotsky Quadrille"). This makes perfect sense, of course, to anyone who has attended a recent simkhe in which musicians play the wide variety of music that their audiences love, and aren't restricted by genre—sort of like today's wedding bands that mix klezmer, Israeli tunes, jazz, and American pop or rock music.

This recording is just beautiful. The suites have been arranged to evoke not just life in Poyln before the Holocaust, but also the boat trip to America, during which Sharon Frant Brooks' father was bar mitzvah'd (memorialized with a quick quote from "America the Beautiful" before Adrianne breaks into a more typical klezmer tune), a delightful "Tish Nign," and an especially poignant last suite, "Farewell and Remembrance" which includes, appropriately enough, Michał Ogiński's "Farewell to the Homeland." This is special. You'll be sharing it with everyone you know. Reviewed by Ari Davidow, 25 August 2016.
