Yiddish Songs By Mordechai Gebirtig
- Unit Price
The Yiddish Composer Mordechai Gebirtig (1877-1942) wrote songs about life in the Jewish neighbourhood of Kazimierz in the city of Krakow, Poland.
The songs tell stories about rabbis and factory workers, gangsters and lovers.
â€œDuring the day he polished furniture, at night he polished songsâ€� said his contemporaries.
Gebirtig was shot by Germans in the Krakow Ghetto on June 4th 1942. For the Gebirtig Project, opera-singer Dalia Schaechter and opera-director Christian von Gotz collected the most important of his songs in an intense and personal recording.
Some of these songs are recorded here for the first time.
