The word "klezmer" from Yiddish, derives from the Hebrew "k'lizemer", meaning a musical instrument, and now also represents the genre of secular Jewish music originating in Southeast Europe. The composition of Klezmer bands consisted mainly of three instruments, dulcimer (hackbret), violin and clarinet. The dulcimer later lost its importance, but a Klezmer ensemble cannot do without a violin and clarinet. The skill of klezmer violinists was once even attributed to magical power, its charm lies in improvisation, and the influence of melismatic synagogue songs is considerable. Other instruments in Klezmer ensembles are the accordion, double bass, and drums. Historical klezmer players played at weddings and other festive occasions, and the life stories of the most famous of them are still captivating, as is klezmer music itself, although it has lost some of its character by being transferred to concert stages.
