And whom you may ask if Issac Schwartz?

A Russian composer, mentored by Shostakovitch, of, I gather, mostly film music.

So does this disc sound like "film music" ? You might as well ask if Prokofiev's Alexander Nevesky sounds like film music. I'll say this: Yellow Stars sounds less like film music than Korngold's (excellent) violin concerto!

I suggest you buy it now. Listen to it, then read the accompanying booklet and then read it again.

If you are like me you will be more than just a little shaken up.

All this says nothing about the very interesting music. As a rule I do not care for Klezmer music. There are sections of two movements here that employ that style but in this context it belongs - the entire message would not likely be possible without it and the sound is superior!

I think this is a disc you will treasure and play for your friends to demonstrate your multi-channel audio system. Appropriately, the surrounds are employed exclusively and successfully to convey the atmosphere and acoustics of a real concert hall. String sound is sweet, instruments are well defined and their timbres are well portrayed. Percussion and triple fortes have real impact.

This is a terrific disc!

"Yellow Stars" by famous Russian composer Isaac Schwartz is a real masterpiece. I heard it many times and I enthusiastically recommend it. It is a great event in classical music. I have no doubt about it.

I am just hearing this music on the (Dutch) radio. Probably the same recording, anyway same performers.

Wonderfull peace of music. Serious Klezmer. Often very moving. Probably I'll buy it.

I would have to hear it more often to give it five stars.
