Genre: Jazz, World | Label: Buda Musique

« Après 7 albums consacrés indirectement à l'héritage culturel maternel (origines juives de Transylvanie), j’ai conçu « Songs for the Old Man » comme une ré-interprétation de l'exil américain de mon père parti dans les années 50 aux Etats Unis.
Un recueil de folk songs clarinettistiques que je "chante" pour mon père, à mon père, mais aussi à tous ceux qui passent leur vie sur la route, les nomades, les hobos, les déplacés, les réfugiés, avec l’envie de mélanger mes influences diverses d’Europe de l’Est à « l’americana ».

"Soul Whispers" is the debut recording by pianist Shoshana Michel. She has arranged and performed a beautiful collection of twelve soothing Jewish melodies (public domain) for solo piano. These songs are also known as Chabad Nigunim. Elegantly and soulfully performed, the music is relaxing and spiritually uplifting whether or not you are of the Jewish faith or culture. Shoshana Michel has been playing the piano since she was a child and this music is obviously very dear to her heart. Jewish music tends to be in minor keys with a melancholy feeling to them - distinctive and very emotionally stirring.

This new live recording pairs profound works by two of the twentieth century's greatest composers: Arnold Schoenberg and Dmitri Shostakovich. Writer Phillip Huscher describes Schoenberg's Kol Nidre a "stark, strong modernist statement," set to the prayer said on the eve of Yom Kippur the Day of Atonement. Schoenberg, who had fled Europe in 1934, premiered the work in Los Angeles in 1938, one month before the devastating the anti Jewish pogroms of Kristallnacht took place throughout Nazi-Germany. Shostakovich's suite explores similarly weighty concerns, including themes of love, morality, death, and the human spirit through the poetry of the Renaissance master Michelangelo. Although originally conceived to honor the fifth centenary of the artist's birth, Shostakovich's settings became a highly personal testament to concerns the two men shared across the centuries.

'Dance!' features the seldom heard combination of violin and accordion. Not much repertoire has been composed for this pairing of instruments, so all of the varied music here - including well-known pieces by Brahms, Bartók, Dvorák and others - has been expertly arranged. It's performed by two top Dutch musicians: violin virtuoso Cécile Huijnen is first concert master of The Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra, a position she has held since 2000, and Marieke Grotenhuis is one of the foremost accordionists in the Netherlands.

The recordings by Isaac Algazi (b. İzmir / Turkey 1889, d. Montevideo / Uruguay 1950) presented here are a precious testimony to Sephardi musical traditions in the last decades of the Ottoman period. Beginning in the 1920s there was not a single Jewish home in Turkey with a gramophone that did not possess Algazi’s records, and by the late 1930s he was known throughout Turkey and beyond as ne’im zemirot Israel (Sweet Singer of Israel; an expression originally used to refer to King David). Algazi was admired not only by Jews but also by Turks – who considered him one of their greatest musicians, honoring him with the titles of Efendi and Hoca (hodja = Master).
