This is a unique collection of songs for voice and piano with historical information about the St. Petersburg Society for Jewish Folk Music. This group of Russian Jewish musicians, in the short time that the society functioned (1908-1918), laid the foundation for the 20th century renaissance of Jewish music in America as well as Israel. In every sense, this book is a tribute to those significant pioneers in modern Jewish music. Irene Heskes, noted musicologist, presents a detailed and exhaustive essay on the composers of this group. Includes representative selections by: Achron, Engel, Milner, Rosowsky, Saminsky, Gnessin, Krein, Schklar, Warshawsky and Zhitomirsky.
