Publisher Comments:

Ethnomusicologist Moshe Beregovski offers insights into Soviet and Jewish history and general musicology and presents the notes and lyrics of nearly three hundred folk songs.<P>Here, translated into English for the first time, is a cultural record the folk music of Eastern Europe. This volume consists of some of Moshe Beregovski's responses to Jewish folk music in its living context during the 1930s, including essays on Ukrainian musical influences, klezmer music, and characteristic scale patterns. Also included are Beregovski's anthologies of hundreds of folk songs with full Yiddish and English song texts. Each song is carefully notated exactly as it was sung and is accompanied by Beregovski's notes on origins and variants.

Book News Annotation:

Slobin (music, Wesleyan) presents folk song collections and essays by Soviet-Jewish ethnomusicologist Beregovsky. Translated into English for the first time, a short introduction discusses controversies over Beregovsky's place in Stalin-era politics and ethnography. Songs are rendered in the 1930s Soviet system for transliterating Yiddish rather than the contemporary Western system. English translations follow in separate sections.
