I have danced to some Klezmer music and it is really fun to do that - very rousing!!<P>Isn't there some Klezmer in "Fiddler on the Roof"? In the wedding celebration, perhaps?<P>I saw a documentary of Itzhak Perlman, violinist extraordinaire, playing with a Klezmer group - and he was struggling for a while - was a lot of fun to watch him - and he was having a ball.

Rambert have a Didi Veldman work 'Kol Simcha' to Klezmer music. My memory is that it is a good piece that uses the stylish music well.

The Klezmer in <I>Fiddler</I> is faux Klezmer -- written for the show and not entirely true to the style.
