About this Recording

WYNER: Mirror (The) / Passover Offering / Tants un Maysele

The Mirror, a play by Isaac Bashevis Singer, explores the interior life of a Jewish woman living in a small eastern European town. The surrealistic plot mixes themes of sexual repression and fantasy, presided over by a demon who haunts the woman’s mirror. Yehudi Wyner, one of America’s leading composers, has created evocative music for The Mirror, inspired by various Jewish traditions—from secular folk and religious song to the music of klezmer bands. Wyner’s Suite from The Mirror, his moving Passover Offering, and the folkloreinspired Tants un Maysele (Dance and Little Story) are featured here in world-premiere recordings by acclaimed soloists.
