“A freiylekhe Nakht in Gan Eydn”

"The Klezmer Conservatory Band" :-D
One of my favourites and good medicine… My soul rejoices, and it desperately needed it today… Shalom fiel…

"What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul"

I made an arrangement of this tune for my middle school orchestra and i’ts one of our most popular pieces

Great tune also a hit at the Bagel Shop.
We play it at least twice the speed.
Freylakh on !

There is a very slow version of this tune called ‘The Secrets of the Tree of Life’

This seems a better time signature for it?

I hope this wasn’t a case of not crediting a source… There isn’t a note of difference, not in pitch or length, but hey, maybe everybody plays it exactly this way? :-/
