Type: CD
Collection: Jewish Music

All songs arranged by Nikolai Kaufmann

This is the first CD of its kind released in Bulgaria and representing songs of the Bulgarian Jews in the three languages practised in this country - Yiddish (Ashkenazi, German Jews), Ladino (Sepharadim, Spanish Jews) and Hebrew. Prof. Nikolai Kaufmann, the eminent Bulgarian composer and scholar, has traced, written down and arranged the lyrical songs, both sacred and everyday in function. The album is not only of musical and artistic value, but it is also an invaluable contribution to the historiography of the song genre, which has existed and still exists in the Balkans, the dialect songs of Bulgarian Jews in particular. .

Nikolai Kaufmann is not only among the most adept Bulgarian musical scholars, a folklorist who has dedicated his life to the preservation, classification, tracing down and popularising the enormous national legacy, but also a composer who has created hundreds of songs - choral, solo, folk-song arrangements, as well as chamber-instrumental works. The CD presents Kaufmann's multi-faced talent with a varied selection of his works. Together with the Three dances (for piano) from "Anthology of Bulgarian Rhythms" and the Dilmano, Dilbero Variations for Piano, one can also hear two pieces for flute and piano, all of them based on Bulgarian metres and rhythms. The release also includes Kaufmann's arrangements of Sephardic and Ashkenazi songs from the Balkans, masterfully re-created by the author as splendid pieces. Folk-music lovers will relish the folk songs from different regions in Bulgaria.
