Melodies of Yiddish Shtetlakh - Sheet Music Book
Melodies of Yiddish Shtetlakh - Sheet Music Book
Compiled and edited by Dr. Yelena Irzabekova
Origin: Baku, Azerbaijan

The book Melodies of Yiddish Shtetlakh contains examples of Yiddish music (folk music and compositions) and continues the series devoted to the Jewish musical heritage.

Although interest in Yiddish music has increased considerably in recent years, its study has become more and more complicated, because the world in which Yiddish culture emerged and flourished doesn't exist anymore. The main purpose of this book is to reintroduce forgotten and unknown scores and historic information relating to the Yiddish musical heritage.

An Anthology of Soviet Yiddish Music - Sheet Music Book
An Anthology of Soviet Yiddish Music - Sheet Music Book
Compiled and edited by Dr. Yelena Irzabekova
Origin: Baku, Azerbaijan

There are some differences in the spelling of Yiddish words in this book. Yiddish uses Hebrew script, but in the post-revolution period Latin script started to be used specifically for song lyrics. However, geographical differences in Yiddish dialects represent real differences of pronunciation, while in some cases perhaps differences are due merely to an absence of rules for transliterating. The spelling in this materials is as it appears in the original materials.

The Harmonica - Book

The Harmonica - Book
The true story of a child's survival during the Holocaust
Origin: USA

Based on a true survivor story, this powerful picture book is yet another astonishing Holocaust account for discussion. A Polish Jewish child, blissfully happy with his loving parents, gets a harmonica from his coal-miner father and learns to play Schubert while his parents dance. The realistic mixed-media, double-page illustrations contrast that glowing warmth of home with the darkness that comes when Nazi soldiers break down the door, separate the boy from his family, and send him to the camps. His harmonica becomes his solace. The commandant hears about the child's playing. He orders the boy to play Schubert and throws him bread. In the end, however, the music does nothing to humanize the brutal Nazis. In fact, one unforgettable picture shows the commandant blissfully listening to the music, one hand over his heart and the other holding a whip. The home memories are idyllic, but there's absolutely no sentimentality about the child's survival. Johnston gives children and grown-ups lots to talk about here--for example, Can a person be both sensitive and cruel?

Mayn Fayfele
Mayn Fayfele
Songs of Gebirtig
Origin: Holland

In 1983, the Austrian State Broadcasting Service produced a two-hour program on Gebirtig, as part of a series on great Jewish personalities, such as Freud, Einstein, Marx, Mahler, Buber, etc. Had anyone suggested to Gebirtig during his lifetime that a time would come that he, the humblest of the humble, would be considered one of the greatest in his field of folk-music, he would have considered it a joke in poor taste.

In this way Sinai Leichter typifies Mordekhay Gebirtig in his "Anthology of Yiddish folksong", Volume 6, and it is a striking characterization.

Yale Strom with Hot Pstromi & Klazzj

Yale Strom with Hot Pstromi & Klazzj
Cafe Jew Zoo
Origin: Canada

Composer and violinist Yale Strom has attempted to capture the many faces of klezmer on this album, and in part he succeeds. Whether it's on "Biribidzhan," with its familiar frantic pace (there were many similarities between klewzmer and Gypsy music), or "Horo Din Caval," led by some lovely guitar picking, or even the attempt at soul with "Ten Plagues," he refuses to be shackled to some stereotype of klezmer. And that's all well and good.

The Afro Semitic Experience
Origin: USA

Even when they seemed to have taken their own routes, the truth is that both the African-American and the Jewish experience in America are as close as ever and will keep on developing side by side since anything that happens to one will affect the second one.

On a positive note In this record both musical experiences come together to create a unique mix and a new sound for these communities.

"Sha Shtil" brings together the rhythms of Eastern Europe with the ones from Western Africa to create a rich melody worth of the best American tradition.

Honey Would You be Meshuga Tonite?
Origin: Philadelphia, USA

This CD contains a rich mixture of jazz, Dixieland, klezmer and Yiddish secular music.

The list of songs include a wonderful combination of all kinds of music from the "Anti-Fascist March" and "Meshugas", to "The Nice Jewish Wedding in New Orleans" and "Babes in White Satin"!

The performance is first class and although not all songs would easily qualify as Jewish but certainly not as Klezmer music it is a record worth having where everybody will find something they like.
