This chapter examines a discography of commercial recordings of Jewish music made in Europe on cylinders and shellac records. The range of musical genres covered by the discography is wide, but may be broadly defined as applying to traditional Jewish music. For example, it excludes works by Jewish composers working in the European classical tradition; art music, even if specifically Jewish in tone and content; and non-Jewish music performed by Jewish artists. It does, however, extend to non-musical recordings such as comic monologues and dramatic recitals. In addition, there are separate appendices dealing with categories such as ‘Jewish’ music performed by non-Jewish artists and Jewish parodies performed by non-Jewish artists, the latter a fairly common genre among pre-revolutionary Russian recordings, but rare in Polish ones of the same era. The chapter then looks at those aspects of the discography that apply especially to Poland.

Keywords:   Jewish music discography, Jewish music recordings, Jewish music, traditional Jewish music, Jewish composers, Jewish artists, comic monologues, dramatic recitals, Poland, Jewish parodies
