This is s superb account of Jewish music that not many people have ever heard of. It is Jewish art music either for clarinet and piano or arranged for them. Some pieces are arrangements of folk songs, but some are not – many compositions here are true art music and will be a revelation to many listeners. I can't recommend it enough.

Date: 2005

The fifth volume in Delos' series of recordings dedicated to the songs of Shostakovich masterminded by series pianist Yury Serov is as absolutely essential for anyone who loves the music of Shostakovich. On this disc, Serov has programmed two of the composers' greatest song cycles: From Jewish Folk Poetry and Suite to Words by Michelangelo Buonarroti. For vocalists, Serov has wisely chosen to retain bass Fyodor Kuznetsov from the previous issues for the Michelangelo songs, but daringly recruited a new trio of singers for the Jewish songs……….Anyone who loves the music of Shostakovich will love this disc, just like he/she would love the four previous discs in this series.

It would have been groundbreaking enough for the Israeli Ofra Haza to have performed an album of Yemeni Jewish songs. But when she and producer Bezalel Aloni added synthesizers, drum machines, and a generous helping of dance beats, they ended up creating one of the seminal records of world music–one of the very first ethno-techno releases whose reverberations extended into dance clubs around the globe, most especially with "Galbi." While its contemporary sound might make it seem shallow, there really is a lot of depth here, the lyrics coming from the poetry of 16th-century rabbi Shalom Shabazi. Along with fellow spirits like Dissidenten, Haza helped pave the way for Transglobal Underground, Natacha Atlas, and Banco de Gaia.

While klezmer music has enjoyed a revival in the late 20th century, Yiddish popular song seemed destined to vanish altogether. But efforts by Mandy Patinkin and Chava Alberstein attempt to breathe new life into the old tradition. This disc of well-selected songs attempts to paint a portrait of village life for Eastern European Jews in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. But besides the charming tunes, Alberstein's rich delivery really brings the tunes to life. There is a nice combination of emotion, sensuality and humor to her delivery that makes the songs consistently intriguing. Even without understanding the words, her interpretation invests the tunes with character.
