MILKENARCHIVE SAMPLER CD


\INTRODUCING THE WORLD OF AMERICAN JEWISH MUSIC"



This "Sampler CD" is a microcosm of the vast recorded panorama of music related to the Jewish experience in America that will be released by the Milken Archive of American Jewish Music on Naxos American Classics over the next several years.?á Comprising 19 excerpts from rare, new and rediscovered works, it reflects the broad spectrum of the more than 600 original compositions representing a wide range of genres, styles, periods and purposes--both sacred and secular--that have been newly recorded for this series.?á Composers include giants of 20th-century music, award-winning contemporary figures, and older composers whose legacies are being "re-discovered," as well as less familiar but enduring figures from the worlds of liturgical and popular music.



Works heard on thisintroductory sampler disc include a rarely heard liturgical setting by LeonardBernstein, part of a world-premiere recording of his little knownJewish-inspired compositions to be released in October; selections from thecolorful world of Yiddish musical theater; excerpts from instrumental concertworks on Jewish themes by composers including Darius Milhaud, Paul Schoenfield,Joseph Achron, and Yehudi Wyner; settings of Ladino poems by Bruce Adolphe;cantorial showpieces with orchestra and traditional prayers in choral settings;selections from Kurt Weill's The Eternal Road, Milhaud's Service Sacre and a Passover cantata by Ernst Toch; and an excerptfrom Dave Brubeck's cantata The Gates of Justice, which explores sharedexperiences between Jews and African-Americans in a plea for brotherhood, oneof several works recorded for the Milken Archive by non-Jewish composersinspired by Jewish ideals and texts.
