This is remarkably beautiful music! The orchestrations are superb, the music elegantly crafted. The Sages of Chelm is based on Hebrew and Yiddish folklore and melodies, presented in a late Romantic idiom --- and, amazingly enough, this metamorphosis not only works but comes alive with great vitality! The listener need not even know the meaning of the Yiddish movement titles or recognize the melodies: this beautiful work stands on its own as "abstract" music.
