Description: 

The Jewish “troubadours” were wandering musicians active between the two World Wars in Eastern European Jewish centers. This collection presents the songs of the Polish "troubadour" Nokhem Shternheim that were preserved in broadsides published in Poland during his life time. These songs, arranged mostly with keyboard accompaniment, reflect the concerns and the ideological trends current among urban Eastern European Jews during a critical period of their history. The studies accompanying the songs deal with the life of the composer, genres of Yiddish poetry and issues of musical style. 33 songs.
