Artsongs of the Jewish Diaspora

released by Acis on March 23, 2024

This beautifully documented disc traces art songs in the Jewish diaspora from the late nineteenth century to the music of today. he two living composers are Lori Laitman and Yehudi Wyner, still with us at the time of writing, aged 94…Laitman and Wyner are programmed one after the other. Laitman’s setting develops like a habanera, the piano joining with the cello, played by Sarah Freiberg; a strong example of her song setting. (Jonathan Woolf, MusicWeb International, May, 2024)
