Notes & Reviews:

Nostalgia, humor, sorrow. The major themes of the diaspora, the poetry of everyday occurrences reflected in the predominantly anonymous Yiddish songs is the lost world of Jewish life in the shtetl, the Jewish settlements of Eastern Europe that were ravaged repeatedly through the centuries by pogroms and finally obliterated entirely by the Holocaust. Composers have again and again let themselves be inspired by the spiritual and emotional cosmos of these often simple and yet powerful lyrics. Jewish destiny in the 20th century is poignantly reflected in the arrangements presented on this CD. The pieces that form the framework delineate, as it were, the beginning and end points of the catastrophe.
