The book’s introduction and guide to performance practice details the use of klezmer’s percussion instruments and its significant artists as this musical culture made its way, via immigration, from eastern Europe to North America in the early twentieth century. Vessels of Song also illuminates klezmer percussion’s influence in the symphony orchestra and in early American popular music.
