5.0 out of 5 stars A Great New Addition to the Milken Archive! March 9, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is perfect for fans of Yiddish folk music and newcomers to the genre alike. It is a great introduction to some of the treasures of the Yiddish stage. Especially worth noting are the four tracks sung by Elizabeth Shammash, whose rich Mezzo-Soprano voice brings a great sensitivity and tone to her pieces.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great collection, nice orchestrations January 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great collection of yiddish musical theatre favorites. Unfortunately the singers were told to sing the songs in a supposedly "authentic" galician accent which in certain instances is completely incomprehensible to any yiddish speaker.The singers are quite good and the orchestrations are lush and well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars I finally got to hear my grandfather's work October 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My grandfather is Ilia Trilling, one of the composers on this CD, who passed away before I was born. I have piles of his sheet music but can't read notes so it was a thrill to finally hear his work performed.
