A Yiddish Winterreise is a sequence of songs from the Yiddish repertoire devised by opera singer and cantor Mark Glanville, recreating the original, Schubertian journey in a Holocaust context. The singer reflects on the life and world he has just seen destroyed as he flees the Vilna ghetto. Minor-key or modal melodies may evoke a sense of sadness, yet a deep-hearted joy, even triumph, are often equally evident.


   




Review By Michael Mark,American Record Guide,May 2010

Many of the songs reflect the influences of classical composers from Mendelssohn to Schoenberg. Some have been arranged by Mr Knapp, who has a formidable scholarly background in Jewish music. These two British musicians have created a program with a variety of melody and emotion that avoids sameness. Even in these profound lamentations, Jews don’t completely lose hope. English texts only and a good essay plus bios. This being a Naxos release, the price is a modest one. Man’s evil and man’s goodness are depicted on these tracks, and the results are unsettling—in a positive way.
