Jewish Cabaret In Exile
And songs by Edmund Nick, Erich Kästner, Kurt Tucholsky, Misha Spoliansky and Marcellus Schiffer
New Budapest Orpheum Society
The New Budapest Orpheum Ensemble’s Jewish Cabaret In Exile follows its acclaimed recording debut, Dancing on the Edge of a Volcano - Jewish Cabaret, Popular, and Political Songs 1900–1945.
On the new CD, the University of Chicago-based troupe offers the fruits of its latest research into Jewish popular music of the early to mid-20th century - repertoire that is 'often funny and always fascinating' (Audiophile Audition) - and the culture that produced it.
The ensemble performs piquant songs of love, lament, observational humor, and social satire with an 'engaging zest' (Fanfare) that has charmed concert audiences in the U.S. and Europe. The program includes songs by Edmund Nick, Hanns Eisler, Friedrich Holländer, Victor Ullmann, and others.

Jewish artists went back to their cultural roots, while including consciously patriotic elements. This was the case in the fields of poetry, painting and music. Jewish literature and painting have to a great extent survived through the art of Chaim Nachman Bialik, Sholom AIeyechem and Marc Chagall, while the music of the "New Jewish School" is only just beginning to be rediscovered in the present day.
The songs featured on this CD are all world premiere recordings. Helene Schneidermann and Jascha Nemtsov give a fine authentic reading of the works.
