Notes & Reviews:

Stefan Wolpe's recording of the orchestral suite from the ballet 'The Man from Midian' reveals a superbly crafted concert work by one of the 20th century's most fascinating composers. Also featured on this CD are excerpts from the concert suite from the ballet 'Moise' by Darius Milhaud. Both ballets are based on the life of Moses and were born out of two unique commissions during the 1940's. The historic development of both works is chronicled in an extensive essay by Neil W. Levin. Recorded here for the first time are excerpts from the opera-ballet 'The Vision of Ariel' by Lazare Saminsky, a leading figure in the groundbreaking Society for Jewish Folk Music in St. Petersburg before he immigrated to the United States, where he exerted a profound influence on music of American Reform worship. Three soulful Hassidic dances by Chicago-born Leon Stein open the CD in celebration of Jewish dance in America.
