*Unique, diverse compilation of wordless Jewish melodies (nigunim) and
liturgical settings
*Features nigunim from folk tradition and contemporary

outside world. Now, Transcontinental Music introduces the first
comprehensive anthology of inspiring nigun melodies, available in a
songbook with CD and on CD alone.

An encore performance of the recently sold-out program at The Jewish Museum and
part of the city-wide festival Bernstein: The Best of all Possible Worlds.
The concert of mostly unknown Bernstein works on Jewish themes, narrated by Jack
, Bernstein’s longtime editor, sheds new light on some of the composer’s
more celebrated pieces. A number cut from West Side Story, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim,
combined with another piece from an abandoned project with lyrics by Betty Comden
and Adolph Green, reveals a surprising transformation as a choral setting in Hebrew.
Among the other works are world premieres of “A Choral Quilt” (arranged by Gottlieb)
