 Update me on new releases by Ellstein

Abraham Ellstein (7/07/1907 - 3/22/1963)

Among the major names associated with the heyday of the American Yiddish theater as songwriters, composers, orchestrators, and conductors, Abraham Ellstein (1907–1963) was the only one born in America. He is generally considered one of the big four of Second Avenue, along with Sholom Secunda, Joseph Rumshinsky, and Alexander Olshanetsky. Ellstein, though he may be remembered most widely for some of his theatrical hit songs, went further than the others in the classical realm, and he considered his theater career only part of his overall artistic contribution.

Ellstein was born on New Yorks Lower East Side-one of the most concentrated eastern European Jewish immigrant areas-and as a boy chorister in local synagogues, he sang with some of the most accomplished cantors of the time. He received his early musical training at the Third Street Settlement House, sang in the Metropolitan Opera Childrens Chorus, and began composing while still a young child. He is said to have written a short opera at the age of eight. At only thirteen he conducted a boy choir in John Barrymores Broadway production of Richard III.
