Naftule Brandwein, volume 2


Klezmer Resource Tape

Naftule Brandwein, volume 2
– (supplement to Rounder CD 1127)
60 minutes


Considering the published Rounder CD as ‘Volume 1’ – this tape ‘Volume 2’ contains some of Brandwein’s best recordings: two doinas, a rubato prelude and original ‘bulgar’ melody on “Lebedik Naftule,” two very revealing alternate ‘takes’ of pieces on the Rounder CD, and the masterpiece “Der Yidisher Soldot in di Trentshes”; one of the most expressive melodies in the klezmer repertoire.
