GREAT SONGS OF THE YIDDISH STAGE, VOL. 1

"The American Yiddish musical theater, a vibrant expression of the immigrant experience, became famous during its heyday in the 1920s-1940s. Combining the musical flavors of Viennese operetta, Tin Pan Alley, and eastern European nostalgia, these songs and duets are quintessential American popular music-- with a Yiddish voice. Volume 1 spotlights the hit songs of Abe Ellstein, one of the genre's premier songwriters. New historically accurate orchestrations re-create the unforgettable glory days of Yiddish radio and film, the uproarsiou vaudeville houases, and the thrill of a night at the theater on onld New York's fabled "Second Avenue."
