This CD is without question one of the most distinct in my collection. Its use of Hebrew and Yidish folk melodies truly is wonderful, and as always the Kronos Quartet performs magnificently. Though I often find myself saying, "What were they thinking?" in regards to many of their projects, they truly have made up for it with this one. I definitely recommend this title, however it is only 32 minutes long so buyer beware.

My comments follow those of the first reviewer. The people reading this review are either Kronos Quartet lovers, those who treasure Hebraic music and also those who might have some curiosity at such a title. I am a Kronos Lover and also very curious. I bought this CD on auction and didn't know exactly what to expect except Kronos means Quality.

The sounds are very ancient and moving. The Kronos quartet which consists of two violinists, one violaist and one cello player is joined by the magnificent horn player David Krakauer. I mention his name of the desire to hear more playing by him. Krakauer uses the clarinet, base clarinet and basset horn. He is another Richard Stoltman although maybe not as well known.

The liner notes are interesting but a bit short. I would have liked more meaning described for each of the movements. Composer Golijov could have told more about how this work ties into the epic history of Judaism. As the first review observes this CD is short in timing. But oh what is said and what is presented in this short time. Better to hear five minutes of Yehudi Menuhin than an extended hour by a lesser skilled.

I will hopefully get more information about the five parts in this CD. I will learn more by listening to it maybe five more times, at least two away from the CPU. The sound quality is magnificient. Played loudly or softly the exotic, haunting chants and hymns are almost undescribably enchanting. The sounds have the meaning representative of a whole nation and its many trials over time. Interesting enough, the next CD I plan to listen to is "The Prince of Egypt."

I got my copy on an auction. The vendor did not realize what was being sold. I feel like a thief in a way. I got a Picasso for pennies.Read more ›

I've been able so far to remain immune of the Golijov disease - it hasn't struck Europe as hard as it has the Americas. This collaboration with the Kronos Quartet, dating back from 1996, is one of the events that made him hot stuff in town. I've been listening to recordings of The Kronos Quartet - they were the early champions of those crossover experiences that had them either playing arrangements of Jazz (Thelonius Monk Monk Suite, Bill Evans Music of Bill Evans, Ornette Coleman in White Man Sleeps, John Lurie and John Zorn in Kronos Quartet : Winter Was Hard) or pop (Hendrix' Purple Haze in Kronos Quartet: Sculthorpe, Sallinen, Glass, Nuncarrow, Hendrix), or commission works by World-Music composers (see my review of Pieces of Africa), or by classically-trained composers inspired by Folk and World-music. Some of the encounters have been merely entertaining but unsubstantial, some others have yielded what I consider to be masterpieces in the genre, infusing fresh sap into a time-old form. I've tremendously enjoyed the quartets composed for Kronos by Terry Riley (...Read more ›

I need to be ravished musically, and this disc does it. Klesmerized avant-gardism, a rare treat for our polyglot sensibilities....

Buy it, it's terrific.
