Anthology of a Yiddishe Mama – Myriam Fuks, Roby Lakatos and others.

alone, but with a myriad of memories, jokes, suffering, and joy . in short, A Life.
And her music reflects the depth of her experience.

violinist, Roby Lakatos, then only 16 years old as well as 2 bonus tracks, one of

Zun Mit a RegnZun mit a regn (Sun and Rain) is a metaphor for ‘laughter and tears’
and a fitting motto for a program dedicated to the three Russian composers and
friends Mieczslaw Weinberg, Veniamin Basner and Dmitre Shostakovich who supported
each other even in the worst of times. World war Two and the reign of terror in the
Soviet Union had a deep impact on the composers. The horrors of war were important
themes in their work and the music of the persecuted Jewish people was a source of
inspiration for them. At a time when Jewish culture was taboo and open
pronouncements could have fatal consequences, this was an act of courage. It was
often years before the works could be premiered, some scores never left the
composers desk drawers or remained buried in archives. This recording includes
unknown scores by Winberg and Basner.
Performed by the Sovali Consort: Soprano, violin, cello and piano.
Weinberg: Jewish songs first cycle; sonata for cello solo; Jewish songs second cycle;
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue no 8 in F sharp minor for piano; Four songs from
‘From Jewish Folk Poetry’; Basner : Poem for violin and piano; Three fragments from
the musical ‘Jewish Luck’ for voice and piano trio
