Posts about Adrienne Cooper written by yiddishsong. Adrienne Cooper recorded that version on her CD Enchanted. The version sung by Josh Waletzky (which I recorded from him in 2007) parallels several found in Noyekh Prilutski’s Yidishe folkslider volume 2 (1913), pages 96 – 104, seven versions in all, and another one in the supplement at the end, pages 164 – 165. Most of the variants are from the Warsaw area.
Autumn Song · Adrienne Cooper. 2010 Golden Horn Records. Released on: 2010-09-03. Песни из любимых кинофильмов. Cooper manages to bring four generations together on this album: Track 9 "A Song Book: My Family" unites her voice with the voices of her grandparents and her mother in a song her grandfather recorded on a wax disc in 1947. Cooper's daughter Sarah Mina Gordon, a gifted singer herself, sings with her mother on a few other tracks. This album actually makes me smile with joy: a great singer plus excellent musicians and arrangements create something very homogenous; a masterpiece in my opinion. The album left me enchanted.
With Enchanted, Cooper has launched a fantastic exploration of the emotional and textural possibilities that Yiddish song can provide; from deeply traditional a capella passages to multi-layered arrangements ala Spike Jones. The cornerstone of the CD is the profoundly heart-wrenching song collage A Lider Bukh (A Song Book), which opens with a 1949 vaulted recording of Cooper’s grandfather chanting a portion of the Yom Kippur High Holy Days prayer, overlaid with ambient sound mists that clear into various songs, woven around parents, grandparents and even Cooper’s own child’s. Adrienne Khana Cooper (September 1, 1946-December 25, 2011) was a Yiddish singer and musician as well as activist who was integral to the contemporary revival of klezmer music. She co-founded KlezKamp.
