Leon Lishner controls a powerful voice (an operatic bass by profession, in fact), and uses it to highlight the juxtaposition present in these songs between sadness and life (the low notes help with the dread and anguish of life, while the power underscores the determination and celebration). That said, Yiddish art music is something of a rarity comparatively, and this album is a good one for the purpose

Yiddish song is a general description of several genres of music sung in Yiddish which includes songs of Yiddish theatre, Klezmer songs, and "Yiddish art song" after the model of the German Lied and French mélodie. From the fourteenth century secular songs were sung in Yiddish, though rabbis of the period directed that sacred songs were only to be sung in Hebrew.

Leon Lishner, who might be remembered as one of the 3 kings in "Amahl and the Night Visitors", sings on 4, with a solo piano accompaniment by Lazar Weiner. His smooth bass voice is marvelous, and very moving. The versatile Martha Schlamme sings 3. "Margaritkelech" is a delight. Herschel Bernardi sings 2, and these are live recordings, full of joy and energy. The legendary Shoshana Damari sings the lovely "Yome, Yome". The booklet insert, though without lyrics, has the history and meaning of each song, and a brief bio of the artists.

Leon Lishner (4 July 1913 - 21 November 1995) was an American operatic bass-baritone. He was particularly associated with the works of Gian Carlo Menotti, having created parts in the world premieres of four operas by that composer. He performed in many productions with the New York City Opera and the NBC Opera Theatre during the 1950s and early 1960s. Born in New York City, Lishner was the son of Russian Jewish immigrants to the United States
